Hope someone can tell me what type of beetle (?) this is. I live in Central Florida and have been seeing lots of these pinkish colored bugs. They vary in size - large ones are about 1/4". They are on cement walkways, wood fences, everywhere you look.

Not beetles, but nymphs of one of the scentless plant bugs in the family Rhopalidae - http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in287
