I recently found these guys on my tomato plants. They like to group together but I'm not sure if they're beneficial or harmful...

RE: Bug Identification

Pretty pink APHIDS. Aphids are one of the most common of garden pests, and come in a wide range of colors: pink, apple green, gray, brown, black, spotted, yellow with black 'stockings', red, and probably more.

Get after them with your fingers or a sharp spray of plain water.
