I also live in Rockwall Texas and just discovered a wheel bug in my back yard. I have never seen one before are they native to this area and why all of a sudden are they beginning to appear? Thanks.

Wheel Bug

Hi Gary,
The typical range of the Wheel Bug includes Texas.  Most Wheel Bugs reach adult size in the autumn and they become more visible.  Smaller nymphs often pass unnoticed earlier in the year.  Additionally adults have wings and they are more mobile which allows them to search for mates.
