Possibly Assassin Bug Hatchlings

Dear Rebecca,
These are recently hatched Heteropterans, or True Bugs, and we strongly believe they are Assassin Bugs in the family Reduviidae, but we would not rule out Leaf Footed Bugs in the family Coreidae.  Many plant feeding Heteropterans remain in groups while feeding, while predatory species eventually become solitary hunters.
