What's This?!?

I've had such good luck with y'all... here you go:

What's This?!?

Crazy little bug is about 1cm long - quite small. It is living on the gate to my driveway. Oh, and it is a bit camera shy ;)

Answer: Wheel Bug Nymph


  1. Looks like a Wheel Bug (Arilus cristatus) Nymph
    Hilton Pond Center( and Wikipedia(
    had some useful info. They state you shouldn't kill Wheel Bugs because they're beneficial insects but their bite is awful.
    Very interesting. Thank you for the close up look at nature!

  2. Thank you so much, Sarah!! That certainly is who we have there. Huh... another bug that tries to stink you out! LOL!!
