Requesting the correct name for this insect.
February 16, 2010
This insect that I would like a name for is seen in the summer months. I have heard that they either eat flies, mosquitoes, or bees? I have seen this insect in South Eastern North Carolina
South East North Carolina
This is a Hanging Thief, a species of Robber Fly in the genus Diogmites. They are predators, and they will eat flies, mosquitos and bees.
Awesome !!! Thanks for the quick response !
