Hi,
I have always liked bugs… mostly the pretty ones, but I find them all interesting nonetheless. I have never seen this creepy little critter before and this year I have them all over my yard. They seem to especially like my mimosa tree. I live in eastern Oklahoma and I think I started noticing them around the beginning of June. I’ve asked several of my friends and none of them seem to know any more than I do!
Thanks for your help!

Hi Barbie,
This predator is an immature Wheel Bug.  We wonder what insects are coming to your mimosa to attract so many Wheel Bugs.  We suspect the mimosa may be in bloom and attracting pollinating insects.

    The first time I saw a wheel bug, I had no idea what it was and was tempted to touch its back. Very glad I enjoyed him from afar!
