My husband found this in our bedroom closet in New Jersey. Is it a kissing bug? Our recent travels have included Texas and Florida. I am afraid it may have hitched a ride back with us.

This is a Wheel Bug, not a Kissing Bug. We are quite curious why there is suddenly so much curiosity and concern about Kissing Bugs as we have been receiving numerous Kissing Bug queries daily for the past week.
Thank you so much for your quick response! There have been many articles on Facebook lately about the kissing bug carrying Chagas disease. Maybe that is why? It certainly was for me.:)
