Do you have bugs that look like this photo from Bugguide.net?

   

If so, you have Harlequin Bugs. They really like plants from the brassica family (cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, etc) and can destroy your garden in a hurry. Handpicking and tossing them in a bucket of soapy water is the most effective way to get rid of them. Also be sure to remove any eggs you see on the leaves, or nymphs that may be crawling around. There are pictures of all three stages in the link above.
