This spider was on my husband. When I went too get him off, the spider actedas if it wants to fight me. Its orange under butt, curled upwards like a scorpion tail does. Also the antennas parted and acted like swords to fight me. What is it? ??

Dear Michelle,
This is an immature Wheel Bug, and though they are not considered aggressive, they will bite if provoked or carelessly handled, and the bite is reported to be quite painful.

    I have a good picture and don’t think it’s a wheel bug. Please, I need information whether to kill it or not.
