This morning I rescued this bug out of my pool. It is about 2.5 inches long and looks pretty scarey. It looks like it has wings. I live in WV and we are just starting to warm up for spring. I have never seen a bug like this before.

Hi David,
This aquatic, predatory True Bug is commonly called a Toe-Biter.  Handle with caution as the bite, though not dangerous, is reported to be quite painful
