Ants are usually drawn to plants that are infested with aphids or other sucking insects; the ants feed on the sweet liquid oozing from damaged tissue caused by the initial pest. You might take a close look at the plants for signs of infestation by pests such as raspberry , tarnished plant bug or beetles of some sort.
