I can't blow up the pic since your website requires log in to access it but from what I can see they look like assassin bug nymphs. Assassins are basically good guys although they do do some leaf sucking. But they also kill aphids, flies, potato and cuke beetles, stink bugs and squash bugs. I welcome them in my gardens.

Compare to pics linked below to be sure.
