I use diatomaceous earth & sprinkle around plants & flowers. It gets rid of the ants as it is microscopic & "cuts" them. Another use is soap with Neem oil mixture. Some people buy beneficial bugs to help out. Another option is to look into the good nematodes.
I am using Laxman rekha for Ants which is working excellent so give a try to draw lines around your plants. For Aphids spray soap or dettol water to keep them away.
