Ant and first pineapple fruit from a pineapple plant

Ant and first pineapple of a pineapple plant. I have been waiting for ten years to this plant give its first pineapple fruit. It happened a few weeks ago, at first of November. After the little pineapple appeared, it began to throw little violet flowers and a group of ants came to the pineapple in order to protect some insects and eating the product or honey that these insects secrete, and hunting other little insects who feed on the sugar of the pineapple.
