Answer: These are indeed a pest. Some gardeners are willing to hand pick them, but this can be very time consuming. Some gardeners find the pheromone traps effective, although in my experience they can attract as many as they seem to catch unless placed at a large distance away. Other solutions are to apply and reapply Neem according to the label instructions or as a last resort, Sevin again applied and reapplied according to the label instructions.
