Are others seeing nymph and adult Wheel Bugs in their gardens (see photos)? We are definitely seeing many, many more than usual. Our stand of Turk's Cap Lilies had 27 blossoms this year and lured in hummingbirds and swallowtails. The American Snout was busy laying eggs on Georgia Hackberry. One of the Monarchs was a female laying eggs, at last (only the 2nd female I've had in the garden this year, to my knowledge).
