Ants can be controlled but we need more information to better inform you? Are the ants coming to insects that are on your bannana plant? What do the ants look like? What do the insects look like?

You can make a soapy water mixture (1 liter of water 2tbs of liquid soap) and spray the entire plant. Also try to locate the nest and apply the mixture to the ant colony until all the ants are killed. You may have to repeat the sprays every other day for a week. I have had success with using this mixture on cocoa plants in Ghana. Please keep us informed with the results.
