Recently I have been seeing ants tunneling under some of my CPs and I thought well no harm done, if they establish themselves, then they will just get eaten more often, but I started seeing them carrying off small yellowish white and roundish objects, I was curious but decided to leave it alone for now, while I was looking to try to ID my Utrics, I saw a bladder and realized that the ants had been carrying away the bladders! I'm not even sure what to do about them, they are impossible to keep away because of my plants' placement, any suggestions for what I should do?

They are digging in the pot but they haven't established anything permanent so doing that would just get rid of them until the water levels go back down :/
