Your letter to the bugman:  We found this “little” guy climbing on us and he was very content to climb around instead of flying. Can you tell what he is?

Wheel Bug

Dear Curious in Quincy,
This magnificent predator is a Wheel Bug, and like many other members of the family, it is fully capable of biting.  The bite of a Wheel Bug is not considered dangerous, but it might be painful, so you should handle Wheel Bugs with caution in the future.

Location: Quincy, Illinois
