Help Identify Red Bugs

MeepsMarch 27, 2013

Hi. I've got a huge infestation of these red bugs right near my veggie garden. Anyone know what these little buggers are and if I need to do something about them?
Thanks.

These are probably one of two closely related species, Meep. One is the Boxelder Bug and the other called the Raintree Bug. Both are seed eaters and not a problem for their host trees or anything else.

To be certain of the ID, we would need to see a much closer image than you have provided.
