You might check a web site to see if your bugs look like Velvet Ants, order of Hymenoptera, family of Mutillidae. I have an insect book where I found this. These insects are from 1/8" to 1", depending on whether you are dealing with a male or female, but they say the males are winged. Around here, they are mostly red and black but the picture in my book shows yellow and black on one and yes, they are furry. If this is what you've got, BE CAREFUL. The female can sting the fire out of you and around here they are called cow killers, due to their sting.
