Gray Spiky Hooded bug?
Hi there WTB,
we found this strange bug in South Carolina and it was so interesting we had to take it’s mug shot before we let him go on personal recognizance. I’ve googled and searched your site but have turned up nothing – any help? Thanks,
Debi – mom of 3 very curious bug loving boys!

Hi Debi and Boys,
The Wheel Bug is one of the largest of the Assassin Bugs, a group of predatory True Bugs that are welcome in the garden. If carelessly handled, they can deliver a painful bite, but they will not make unprovoked attacks on humans.
