Need help with pest identification

Post  No_Such_Reality on Tue 5 Jun - 19:28

There is this worm like thing, small, disappeared when I touched it, I fumbled and it hit the MM and instantly disappeared into it.



And something, maybe that thing above are leaving these black droppings all over. My garlic and onions have it stuck to them. You can see a spot on the photo above just to the left of my finger. This leave has quite a bit. My garlic has big swaths of black droppings.



Concerned they're going to kill off the cukes and afraid my garlic and onion have lost the fight already. Any ideas as to what it is?



Thanks

Can't tell for sure, but maybe Army Worms. I found a bunch of castings on my tomato leaves and when I started looking closer, I found several worms. After googling it, it appeared to be Army Worms. Check this link and see if what you have looks similar: http://entomology.unl.edu/images/smgrains/armyworm/armyworm.htm

From your photo, it looks like it might be.

I appreciate the help, however I don't think they're doing the leaf/stem style damage that army worms do. The plants that are failing seem to be failing more like they're just being sucked dry.
