How to get rid of ants

The fist step in controlling aphids is to control the ants that feed on the honeydew they secrete. So how do we get rid of the ants. I have no images.

Actually the opposite is usually the best treatment plan. Treat the aphids and remove the food source of the ants. Without aphids the ants will generally move on.
Neem Oil is a good treatment for most aphid infestations.
