You may find on close inspection that the shrub is covered with aphids which are in turn attracting the ants. If this is the case, insecticidal soap such as Safer's can be used to kill the aphids. Read and follow the label instructions. Meanwhile, make sure the shrub is provided with ample moisture to help it recover.
