I was driving when this thing fell on me and I seriously almost crashed! It must have been inside the car or on the roof the whole time. It looks absolutely disgusting! I’ve never seen anything like this before. What is this?
You were startled and disgusted by an immature Wheel Bug, a beneficial predatory species of Assassin Bug that might bite if carelessly handled. We wonder if any studies have ever been conducted of the frequency of accidents caused by extreme reactions to insects, including stinging bees and wasps, that are discovered inside automobiles in motion.
Thank you for the quick reply and providing me with the details on this bug. I agree and also wonder if any studies have ever been conducted, I am curious to know.
