How to Create a Small Ecosystem in Your Garden with Bee-flies

how to create a small ecosystem in your garden with bee-flies


Ferocious looking little insects fly about in my Perthshire garden at this time of year. Seriously they really do strike a touch of fear in you the very first time you encounter them. 

They look so intimidating with their large proboscis that looks just like a sharp sewing needle.  They also have a thick hairy body like a small bumble bee along with a high pitch buzz.  They look and sound so threatening but honestly they're no threat to anyone ...that is unless you're a ground nesting solitary wasp or bee.
