Size: Bigger than a stink bug
It was a hot afternoon. Sitting at a red light. Spot these things climbing up the car near the passenger side mirror. They were big bugs. I’m pretty sure not stink bugs (as several people keep insisting they are.) We have stink bugs too, and these aren’t the same. The closest I could find was maybe a Wheel bug? Thanks!
