Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I have no idea what this could be. It's a lot of small black spiders with bright orange dots on the limbs of one of my trees. They're so small it's hard photograph

These are insects. Assassin bugs. mostly nymphs from a hatching.


They could be Wheel Bugs. They have thick long antennae that make the bugs look like they have 8 legs. I’m pretty sure they are nymphs of some kind of Leaf Bug, Wheel Bug,or Assassin Bug. Insects like these can be found in clusters of different life stages. Nymphs like this have bright colors with black. The colors can change hues as they develop. If you can catch one at some point, I would be happy to try again.
