Hello! First, thanks for this site- it’s helped me name a lot of bugs I’ve come across.
Tonight I happily discovered a wheel bug outside my dorm, munching on a cricket. It’s the first one I’ve seen in years, so I didn’t hesitate to take photos. I thought you might be interested in them.
And no worries- I’ve already put this beautiful wheel bug right back where I found it, cricket and all.
Thank you for supplying us with a food chain image of a Wheel Bug feeding upon a Cricket. Though Wheel Bugs are formidable predators, our archive is noticeably lacking of images of them feeding.
