Default Red bugs



I am lost on searching for this one.

It looks almost like an aphid but it cant be, its fast and running around the leaf litter. Jut a couple mm in size I would say. 5 mm at most.

From a frog's eye, I would think that "tasty" might describe them better.

my first guess would be juvenile stages of box elder bugs. I pinned up a series of them in college and they looked a lot like that.

Box elders seems correct will see as they get bigger. Thanks

The frogs don't eat it?

It could be any one of those similar looking hemipterans-but boxelders are so abundant that is a likely one.
