Gilmer, TX(Zone 7b)

I found a bug on my cornflowers yesterday that I don't recognize. They are red and look kind of like a cross between a big red ant and a spider. They have some dark markings and are about 1/4 inch long with fairly long legs. Their posture is wierd--their behind kind of sticks up in the air.
I'm also afraid I have leaf hoppers.
Can I get rid of these insects with diluted dish soap? I've used that successfully on aphids on my roses.
