Subject: Bugs in backyard
Geographic location of the bug: Torrance California

I put fly traps up in backyard to help with flies around my dogs and I end up catching these bugs instead. I just want to make sure these are not mosquitos since my dogs and myself are outdoors in backyard often. Thank you for any info you may give.

Dear currious mom,
These Long Legged Flies in the family Dolichopodidae are beneficial predators in the garden, though they are only able to eat the smallest of prey.
