The ants themselves are not a problem, but they are likely on the plant because of aphids, which can hurt the plant. The ants are attracted to honeydew, the sweet sticky substance that aphids and other sap-sucking pests leave behind. I would try treating the plant with neem oil, which is effective for handling these pests.
