Ants living in flourescent fixture...

I noticed some ants in the enclosure, and it seemed like it was coming from my living wall. So I took the whole enclosure outside and hosed it out. That took care of all of the ants in the enclosure, so I put it all back together. An hour later, I see ants marching on the top of the cage. They are coming from the UVB fixture and I can shake eggs out of it, which means they must be nesting inside of it.

I shook it, I blew it out, I left it sit outside overnight. They keep coming back as soon as it gets turned on. I’m afraid to use poison as its near the enclosure.

I may put it in the freezer overnight. Anyone deal with this before?
