I have some wierd looking bugs I recently noticed on my tomato plants. They have bodies like ants, are about the size of an ant, orange in color with black legs. Six legs and 2 anteneas.They gather in clusters on the tomatoes themselves. Anyone know what they are?

It sounds like aphids to me- I have seen bright orange ones clustered solid on new growth-A good strong spray of water should remove them, if not mix some liquid dish soap, tabasco sauce and water for a spray.
