I found 5 pearl colored eggs about the size of a pinhead on the back side of a hydrangea leaf. A few weeks later they hatched out into these tiny 6 legged, orange and white striped bugs with long antennas. Any ideas?

I think they are bugs as in of the order of true bugs, and likely to be something that sucks from the plant. Their shape is a lot like nymphs of squash bugs.
