I saw these bugs last year and looked them up. I can't remember what they are. Can someone help me? Some of them are black with a white stripe across their back and some of them are red almost like squash nymph bug . They have enlarged saddles on their legs. They are all over my grand mullein and my Needle plant and several others. I don't remember them being good bugs. Thank you!

I'm not sure but it might be one of the Assassin Bugs on one of these pages: http://bugguide.net/node/view/166/bgpage

I bet someone on the Pest & Disease Forum would be able to offer an exact Identification: http://garden.org/forums/view/pd/
