Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Who Are These Visitors?

I know it says welcome at my front door but ...


I'm not sure I would open the door to these two visitors.






What are they?

Marcia, I think it's a Wheel Bug. Look here: http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2010/10/31/bug-of-the-month-november-2010-wheel-bug/ Very interesting. I don't think I've ever seen one here.

Thanks for the id Holley. I've bookmarked that site for future reference.

Yipes….. Even with a pretty name like "Wheel Bug"---I wouldn't welcome these critters either…. Glad you found out what they are!!!!

We had some visits last week from a ton of Lady Bugs…. The newscasters on TV were talking about them coming out after a cold spell (which had then turned warm)… Seems as if the Lady Bugs were EVERYWHERE for a day or two. Glad they moved on!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

We experienced that in China in 2010 when we went into the countryside with our daughter for a picnic/hike. Ladybugs were everywhere.
