Spider-Like Bug on Bell Peppers

Anonymous added on July 11, 2015 | Answered

I am growing bell peppers in pots on my elevated porch. I have some sort of spider-like bug, has some orange on its back and black legs. They seem to be eating the leaves and ripening peppers. What are they and what should I use to get rid of them?
