Welcome to the community. Not to sure but Capt. Jacks dead bug might help. @Covertgrower @nicky @Not2SureYet @Happilyretired @kellydans any ideas.

A cheap non-toxic bug repellent.

Boil some HOT peppers and a couple of cigarettes.
Strain well. Put liquid in spray bottle and apply liberally.
Re-apply after rain. It should stop most bugs from bothering your plants. :+1: :sunglasses:

Ants are usually only present on plants (for the most part) when there is an aphid infestation …the ants farm the aphids and protect them for thier honeydew

The ant will touch the aphid a certain way and it will essentially crap and the ants love it

Make sure it isn’t aphids like oleander aphids …
Get a loupe and inspect the areas of new growth closely

I’m also almost positive the “larve” ypu describe is aphids not ant larve

Jacks is the way to go, especially during flowering.

Always the right way to go, not really sure I trust any other product. Even in veg let alone flowering.
Covert has you covered
