Help with a bug
I found this bug, dead, in my son’s room. I have no idea what it is, but he has recently suffered from some bites. I was wondering 1) what this might be, and 2) could it be the culprit of the bites?
Thank you!

Is your son’s room in Florida? We believe this is a male Lovebug in the genus Plecia, a Fly.

No, not Florida. Sorry for not including that in my original e-mail; we ARE in Georgia, though, and I’ve heard of Lovebugs in this area. Just never seen one before. If this isn’t what could have bitten him, I will have to keep looking. Thanks!
