Try garlic tea, it will take care of most beetles. If that doesn't
work right away, use garlic/pepper tea. Last resort, because it
actually kills the bugs and also kills beneficial insects is
garlic/pepper tea with orange oil.
Make sure that the beetles are actually harming the plant. A great
many beetles are beneficial and eat harmful critters.
I've never seen okra harmed by ants, generally they're after aphids, and
other tiny insects. We have them all the time and just tap the okra with
a stick to dislodge them while we cut the pods. That's so we won't get bit.
