Found these bugs next to front door handle. There were three of them about the size of a tick. Thought at first it was a spider but only six legs. They look like they may have just hatched out cause there are what look like egg sacks next to them. Found them yesterday at about 04:00 PM on a sunny afternoon and the temperature was around 80.

Dear Brian,
These are immature Leaf Footed Bugs, and based on this BugGuide image, we are very confident they are
Acanthocephala terminalis.
