Mating Flesh Flies

Hi Brian,
These are not House Flies.  We believe they are Flesh Flies in the family Sarcophagidae.  According to BugGuide, they are:  “Similar to blowflies, but generally blackish with gray thoracic stripes (never metallic); 3 black racing stripes on a gray background” and they often have red eyes.
