Milkweed Bugs and Leaf Spoting

Does anyone else have a yard full of Milkweed bugs? I have a lot of ugly leaves. I suspect it's from them.

Another pic. From reading on the internet they don't have many predators because they build up toxins in their body from the sap. The bright colors are suppose to ward off predators. I know they are very easy to catch.
