What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Here is one for you!
I live in Tehachapi, CA and found a ton of these on the weeds next to an evergreen. Can you help?
Thanks,
Brian

Hi Brian,
This is the nymph or immature stage of the Large Milkweed Bug, Oncopeltus fasciatus. Even though they appear in great numbers, they sip nectar from gardens and crop fields but do no significant damage.

Hello again, I thought since I had the chance, I would send you a photo I took of the group of milkweed bugs. Thanks again for your quick reply. Regards, Brian
