Orange and black gila monster like (Lady beetle larva)

(Eliabethtown, PA )
A number of these insects congregated on the brickwork in an area on my house. Black with orange stripes that ran the length of the body and a few yellow dots. The body seemed to have spikes on it and the 6legs are solid black. I live in south central PA. One had it tail against wall and was bobbing up and down another seemed to be either in a web or spinning it I was unable to tell.

Orange Bodied Insect with Black Legs & Long Black Antenna (Leaf-footed bug nymphs)
(Frisco, TX )
Hi Moni! I have a small family of these orange & black insects on my Bell Pepper plant. I have the feeling that they are eating other insects & worms but just want to clarify that they are in fact good for my garden. They are living in a Bell Pepper plant in a horse trough that I have converted into a vegatable garden that also contains red onions & potatoes. Thank you very much for any help you can give it is greatly appreciated! Frisco, TX
