What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

what is this insect?
Dear Bugman,
My husband found these strange-looking fellows on one of our trees in the backyard and were perplexed as to what it is. We thought it might be some kind of beetle. We live in North-Western Virginia near the mountains.
Thank you!

Hi Angela,
What an awesome image of newly hatched Wheel Bugs. These are a species of predatory Assassin Bug.
