|Ants are natural. Laurels produce a good deal of moisture along the new leaves, sap. The ants love to feed on it. Chances are that they are not the cause of your issue.
Laurels take time to get established. Are you watering them enough? I mean deeply watering them. I would have suggested a weekly deep watering of the roots. So before the cold weather comes, keep them moist, don't make them grow in a swamp. A little fertilizer might help, maybe once in the early spring would help.
