These insects were massing on a pile of lumber and around and on a nearby tree (dont know the kind) at the end of September in zone 5.
There appeared to be several life stages at once. Some were smaller with just a hint of black and others were larger and more like a harlequin bug in shape.

Red & Black Bug (small milkweed bug)
by luann kinney
What is this bug?
Red & Brown, Flying, 1.25" long (soldier beetle)
(Menlo Park, CA, USA)
Red Flying insect, over 1 inch
Appears orange-red, mostly red to the naked eye, except for the wings & lower body of the insect -- that part is medium-to-dark brown. Photo makes red parts appear more amber brown (which may be accurate, but I don't see it like that with my naked eye).
Landing mostly on long grasses: my non-native Oat grass & papyrus, and my native Festuca californica. Sometimes seen on a couple other plants (native & non-native), but much less frequently.
Noticed first in March, & they continue now (April 2010). Right now they are mating. Otherwise crawling up along the grass stems. When they're on the Festuca, they are found on the blooming stems (ones producing seeds).
Let me know if picture is not good enough.
weird red-tail (Wheel bug nymph)
This insect has a weird, red, scorpion-like tail and was found in the kitchen. Not sure what it is; it resembled a spider in the way that it looked and walked. There were also little hook-like things on the end of its legs.

There are hundreds of these little tiny red bugs with black legs on my black eyed susans. They are all over the stems, some have wings. It looks like they are babies and some are bigger. I can't figure out what they are. I live in Northern CT. If you can help me, I would be so grateful! Thank you in advance!

Tiny Red Insect (Leaffooted bug nymph)
Nice color but waaayyy too many of them!
Found two groups of these tiny Red insects on my Gutters. Each one has 6 legs and 2 antenna, and are a very bright red. They weren't crawling around but were clustered in a group.
They were in the same place on the gutter except on different sides of the house, right on the joint of the gutter pipe leading down from the roof.
Very small, but a lot of them.
Red/Orange Flying insect (Hanging-thieves Robber fly)
red/orange flying insect
We found this insect on our garage door handle last summer and were quite intrigued by him (or her). We do a lot of gardening and last summer was the first time we have seen a bug such as this. Actually we never saw more than just this one but that doesn't really mean much. He didn't seem to mind our attention or having his picture taken although he refuse to have a picture taken of his face.
red-brown insect (Smooth Spider beetle)
This critter is about a 16th of an inch. Dark red to brown. Pretty slow moving, no wings that I could see. I thought it was a spider beetle until I saw your picture of a spider beetle. Maybe a juvenile? Mostly found on the upper floor of our house in DC.
Tiny red bug (Black-legged Tick )
This little red bug was found crawling on my arm today at work. Not sure if it was from home (shirt I was wearing) or from work. I am worried that it might be a bed bug because I have noticed a few tiny red itchy bumps on my body.The bug was put under a digital microscope and magnified. Please help to identify so I can call a professional if needed. I've been itchy all day just thinking about these little bugs. Thanks in advance!

Red-orange and black beetle (Squash vine borer moth)
This little red-orange and black guy or gal was found in a garden in Rockland County, NY. The shape and antenna make me think "beetle," but I could be wrong about that, as I don't have insect ID experience.
