If you see it, you can probably use it. That's the general rule when it comes to materials in Grounded. Useful items require all sorts of strange resources to craft, and it's not always obvious where you get them from. Acid Glands are one such example, used to craft armor like the Red Ant Arm Guards. 

From the name alone, you've likely worked out the Acid Glands come from some type of insect. But which one?

Acid Glands can be harvested from some of the aggressive bugs in the backyard, such as Larva. These gross little creatures can be found all over, though a concentration of them can be found near the Hedge biome. 

Acid Glands aren't a guaranteed drop from Larva, so you might need to hunt down a few before you get what you need. Luckily, where there's one Larva, there's usually a few.
