What are the black bugs that look like a lighting bug with an orange head? They are everywhere, on my my flowers and humming bird feeders, also. Are they a bad bug or a good bug ?

It is hard to say for sure what the bug is without a picture to go by. But it could be a boxelder bug. If it is boxelder bugs they are harmless on the birdfeeder of course but i would probably spray malathion or a spray that contains pyrethrins. One way you could maybe identify the bug is to crush a couple. If they stink when crushed they probably are boxelder bugs.
