Hello, this little guy invaded my house when I left the back door open. He has wings like a wasp, a body like a bee, and a large head with short antennae. I have no idea what he is and was hoping you would know.

Flower Fly

Hi Celina,
We are going to have to go with “or what” since this is a Flower Fly in the family Syrphidae.  Many Flower Flies are excellent mimics that are frequently mistaken for Bees or Wasps.  See BugGuide for more information on the family Syrphidae.
