I started seeing these tiny golden/bronze eggs in little clusters on my pumpkin leaves. Then they hatched into these bugs. They ate all of the leaves and caused the vines to die. A few of the pumpkins also had little holes bored through them, but I'm not sure if those were caused by these or some other bugs.
Pumpkin and squash patches. (They did not eat any of the other vegetables in my garden, just the pumpkins.)
Thanks to KeithRoragen for the ID.
