It sounds like the ants are destroying roots in the area by building their nest. I recommend getting rid of the ants. You can use boiling water, or an insecticide to do so. Then you will want to repair the soil by using dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur. After this, and about a week's time, you can reseed the area.
