Do you actually have 'army worm' in America? I thought it was confined to the African countries and was a problem with maize. I cannot see any stripes on this one.The first photo looks like an army worm to me. You might search images and look for army worm to confirm. Also i a sure there will be more responses. The second photo does not look to me like it is the same. They are blending nicely into the background
It looks like an European Crane Fly or Texas Mosquito. One year they were so thick in my garden that I could get handfuls from a water logged hole. They destroyed almost all my seedlings, when planted out. They are relatively new to Canada. It took awhile to identify the beast. I knew not what to do. Then my yard was filled with starlings and blackbirds about four times a day around 100 per visit for about ten days. I watched with binoculars one bird eat about 15 in one minute. Suddenly the leatherjackets were all gone and I never had such an infestation again. That was ten years ago. I shiver thinking about the situation.
Nope, I don't think it is an army worm. Looks more like a crane fly larvae to me.
