Are you sure it is the ants causing the problem. Perhaps they are going after other insects there. Best option for you to get local information is to visit or call:

Cooperative Extension of Ocean County
Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station - Extension Center
1623 Whitesville Rd.
Toms River, NJ 08755-1199

They should e able to examine sample of you plant, or even pictures, in order to provide a problem diagnosis and potential solutions.

You can reach the "Master Gardeners" at the office at 732-349-1245, and they should be able to answer your questions.
