Wheel Bug

Dear Paula,
Your son-in-law encountered a Wheel Bug, the largest, predatory Assassin Bug in North America.  Though many Assassin Bugs will bite if provoked or if they feel threatened, and though the bite might be painful, Wheel Bugs are reluctant to bite humans and the bite is not considered dangerous.

Potato Bug

Dear Mike,
We doubt that many Southlanders, either natives or recent arrivals, will ever forget their first encounter with a Potato Bug, an iconic insect found in Southern California.  Potato Bugs are subterranean dwellers that are often sighted shortly after the first good rain to hit the region as they come to the surface.

Your letter to the bugman:  I found this weird little thing just chilling on my school desk, and had never seen a spider like it so though to see if someone else knows what it is. He’s not very big at all, would only be a centimetre across at most. He wasn’t found near anything natural at all but in the middle of the school. There are some small bits of bush around and in the school as well. It is at the end of Spring right now, almost at Summer in Australia.I’m not sure what other information might be useful so email me if you need to know something else.
Thanks for your time, Lochie
