Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. The ants are feeding off the nectar around the flower buds. They're not harming the plant, so our recommendation is to not worry about them.

 

If you don't like seeing the ants, you can try using ant bait around the base of the plant. But there's no real good way to deter them that I've ever heard of.
