What is this bug?
I am typically pretty brave around bugs, but for some reason this one scared me. The first time I saw it I thought it might be a wasp, but after some research I believe it is some kind of fly. I am used to the various bettles and garden pests that come with growing a garden, but this is the first year I remember seeing these. I think it is also a fine addition to your “Bug Love” page. Please help with the identification.

Hi Jamie,
Your mating Squash Vine Borers, Melittia cucurbitae, are wasp mimic moths.
