I planted a blue berry plant. It was not growing at all. I pulled some soil away and saw lots of ant like things, but 3-4 times bigger. Is there any future for my blueberry plant?

Based on your description, I'm not sure what insect is making a home near your blueberry bush. But, I'd suggest digging the plant up and removing the pests from the root system. By digging away the insect infested earth and removing it, then replanting your blueberry, it should be able to recover.

Best wishes with your blueberry bush!
