Your letter to the bugman:  In case you need another photo… these flies are big. After I saw it was a horse fly, I went back outside and killed it. (Horse farm 0.5mi up the street…)

Black Horse Fly

Dear JonKernPA,
Thanks so much for submitting your image of a female Black Horse Fly.  Female Horse Flies can be identified because of the space between their eyes.  Male Horse Flies lack the space.  Female Horse Flies are the blood-suckers.  Males are harmless.

Location: Quakertown, Pennsylvania
