We have seen a few of these bugs in our yard mainly on the house like this one in the photo but this is the largest one we’ve seen so far. We’re just very curious to know what they are! Thanks for any info!

Wheel Bug

Dear April,
This is a predatory Wheel Bug, a common species in the eastern portions of North America.  Though not aggressive toward humans, like other Assassin Bugs, they might bite if carelessly handled or if they feel threatened.
