Hi we keep getting these and I think it’s a type of bee but not sure.
It hovers and buzzes really strangely and will even go silent then get really loud!
It can go from hovering to high speeds fast!
Thanks for your help,

This is a harmless Yellowjacket Hover Fly or Good News Bee. We hope future encounters you have will not end with such Unnecessary Carnage. As an aside, our editorial staff hails from Youngstown, Ohio, just west of Pittsburgh.
Thank you! We thought it was going to sting our dog… now I feel bad. So glad to know because we have had one around us everyday for the last 2 weeks and we will welcome them now! ️
