Eastern Lubber Grasshopper Nymphs

What kind of cricket is this…
I found this cricket on the side of our house tonight. There were "swarms" of them, so to speak. There were at least 100 of these little things all over the wall. They weren’t too big but were black with a redish orange stripe down the side and on top of them… The picture attached is a camera phone picture so I do have to appologize for the quality of it. Thank you for your help,
Nick

Hi Nick,
These look like Easter Lubber Grasshoppers, Romalea guttata, the dark form. This grasshopper is found in the southeast U.S.
