What are these?

And these? I trust this one more than the first. Should I?

They are on a pluot. Actually this pluot had an aphid problem until I put tanglefoot on and stopped the ants from farming them. It's a 4 in 1 tree and 3 varieties have nice healthy leaves but the 4th (Dapple Dandy) not so much as you can see.

The bottom one is ladybug larvae, and the top two are pupas waiting to hatch into adult ladybugs.
