Is this a bee killer? If so should I be concerned?
How you want your letter signed: Thanks you
We believe your Robber Fly is a Red Footed Cannibalfly, Promachus rufipes. Robber Flies in the genus Promachus are commonly called Giant Robber Flies or Bee Killers, according to BugGuide, so you are correct. You should not be concerned.
