I get these on my tomato plants and a few others all the times. They leave little white dots on the fruit and it becomes soft from the inside out. Troublesome little things!
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but, the heart as well. Sheila

I love the contrast. Yes, I wonder what kind of bug this is too. Their red color makes them seem fierce.

Looks like an Assassin Bug nymph, a beneficial garden insect.

Leaf-footed bug nymphs look similar to the Assassin Bug nymph.... but the Leaf-footed Bug will "munch" on tomatoes where the assassin bug does not.
