Sorry, to bother you again, and thank you for answering my last inquiry. There are these flies/bee things here and they are soooooo big. No clue what they are, could you please see if you can help me out again?? I thought maybe horse/deer flies, but nothing is as big as these are. The pics don’t do the size justice. I shouldn’t have zoomed in, but I wasn’t getting close lol
Signature: Thanks a bunch! Julie
This Tiger Bee Fly, Xenox tigrinus, is perfectly harmless. According to BugGuide it is: ” A large Bee Fly with a distinctive wing pattern. Note the large, wrap-around eyes.”
