Sugar ants in my spider's terrarium

So I was changing my tarantula's water and discovered a colony of sugar ants (i apologize for not knowing their proper name) is living in the coconut fiber. An actual colony. I think the nursery was under the water dish because they started scrambling moving the pupa away.

Needless to say I have a very upset spider and they can't stay where they are. If I wanted to keep the colony, would it be best to leave them where they are and move the tarantula to a new tank, or transfer the colony to a more suitable environment, clean the tank with vinegar so they won't return to it, and keep the spider where she is? It was cool watching them scramble and I'd like to continue watching them, just away from my G Portera as she doesn't appreciate the roommates.
