First one looks like a carpenter ant

Second one looks like a millipede

Second one is a centipede and do not let it in the bed with you.
Fist one is very blurry to me but if it looks like an ant with a three part segmented body with wings then it’s just a swarming ant.
If it has a two part body it might be a swarming termite. The photo is too blurry to tell.

Centipedes, especially large ones, can put a nip on you, they have a venom, usually not too serious, effects are similar to wasp sting.

But centipedes bite, they do not have a tail "stinger". Their venom is in the pair of fangs, actually modified "mouth legs".

Do you still think ants? There were like 20 of them. This is an old tree that needs to be repotted soon.
