OH NO! Ants don't feast on aphids, they farm them like we use cows and even carry aphids to tasty plants.
To get rid of ants, place a large pot upside down over nest and put weight ontop. Leave for several weeks, ants will move nest up inside the pot. When well established, slide shovell under and put into bucket of water.
