Dear CC,
We believe that if you look at images posted to BugGuide, you will agree that this is a Spotted Cucumber Beetle,
Diabrotica undecimpunctata.  BugGuide remarks:  “Considered a major pest of many field crops including cucumbers and other squashes, corn, soy. Beetles also transmit crop diseases such as bacterial wilt. Adults also reported damaging to garden plants including hibiscus, roses.”
