I spied these insects along a trail at a park in Plano. I’ve never seen anything like them. Giant ants, perhaps? They certainly are creepy – yet fascinating….
I did some research and discovered these are Wheel Bug nymphs. Friends in the garden – much like the ladybug.
The photo above shows eggs.
I’ve photographed the adult form in previous blog posts – you can click here to see the transformation into adulthood.
