Thanks! Barely over a centimeter long. Is it a beetle? is there another order it could be under? I would like any information, maybe to the family level at least? Thanks.

Dear Scott,
This colorful creature is NOT a beetle.  It is a Candystriped Leafhopper.  Leafhoppers have mouths designed to pierce and suck fluids from plants, so despite their beauty, they are not welcomed by home gardeners.
