So my boyfriend is a mail man in Massachusetts and he keeps getting invaded by these odd looking bugs. We’ve never seen them before but apparently all his mail man friends are having the same hitchhiker bugs in their trucks as well. Help what is it?!?!?

This is a Robber Fly in the family Asilidae, an aerial predator that catches its prey while on the wing. We are unable to provide a species identification. We don’t know why all the mail trucks in Reading, Massachusetts are being used by the Robber Flies as resting spots.
