Wheel bug eating a Japanese Beetle
Thought you might like to see the wheel bug in action. I live in northern Virginia and saw two wheel bugs fighting over this beetle. When I came back with my camera the winner was enjoying his meal. Now if I could just get him to eat the other 10,000 beetles in my flower garden….. Thanks for having such a wonderful site!
We have gotten numerous reports of Wheel Bugs feeding on Japanese Beetles this year, but your photo is the only visual documentation we have received. Thanks so much for sending in your dramatic images.
