Harlequin bugs have been the bane of my gardening season this year. I just came across this wonderful picture resource for identifying and finding out how to deal with local garden pests from the folks at Grow It Eat It. My own personal takeaway from the site is that removal of all plants at the end of the growing season will keep harlequin bugs from having a spot to overwinter.
