Wheel bug nymphs and Spotted lanternflies

So I was recently at a local park in Lancaster County PA and found many spotted lanternflies in the process of laying eggs, in each of these trees there were also wheel bugs mating and laying eggs as well. Has anyone seen wheel bug nymphs killing spotted lanternfly nymphs?

I dunno but I hope you squished those lanternflies and their eggs. SUPER invasive.

Oh absolutely. We squished so many and I removed all the egg masses I could reach.
