If there’s ants, they’re likely there to suck the nectar that another pest is causing on the plant. I had ants on my lemon tree because of mealies. So you need to treat for pests & ants.

I treated for pests (use whatever you would use indoors) or grab an insecticide from a big box store that would cover pests & ants.
@Blau_Ozean thank you Lauren❀️
@Luza of course! πŸ’•
It looks like mealy bugs in your plant. I would isolate your plant and treat with Neem oil. Check your other plants if they're close to your plant and treat them also.
@Sassylimey I will, thank you SarahπŸ™πŸ»
@Luza Make double sure it’s safe for houseplants.
Hope you were able to find a helpful answer! πŸ’š
@TruthfulApricot thank you MaryπŸ€—
