How do I stop ants covering my gardenias?

I almost lost the plant and not sure if it was the ants or if something else got to it. Its now back but I hate the ants on it . Help PLEASE

Flowers and Ornamentals • Pests

Check your gardenias for scale, aphids or mealy bug. These insects attract ants because they exude honeydew. Try Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray. Follow up with some Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It's a organically certified fertiliser, which contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth.
