Wheel Bug

Arilus cristatus


Black/brownish body with white hairs all over its body. Orange legs, two antennae.


Shrubs, structures, etc.


Many community members are seeing these bugs for the first time this spring. I have lived in SE Oklahoma all my life and haven't seen them or noticed their increase in population until this month.
