Your letter to the bugman: Hello. I am 43 and have lived in this area my whole life. I saw a strange bug the other day twice in the same day that I never saw before or after. 1st sighting was at my home the next 25 miles north. It was very large and could still fly with no immediately visible wings. It looked like there was a red hook for its nose/snout. It was very similar to the pictured wheelbug but not the same an no wheel on its back
How you want your letter signed: Thanks, Ken Davis
