• Hoverflies, sometimes called ‘flower flies’ or ‘syrphid flies’, are the insect family Syrphidae.
  • As their common name suggests, they are often seen hovering or sucking nectar at flowers. The adults of many species feed mainly on nectar and pollen, while the larvae (maggots) eat a wide range of foods.
  • Hover flies are true flies, but they look like small bees or wasps. They are the helicopters of the insect world, often seen hovering in the air, darting a short distance, and then hovering again. These beneficial insects are valuable tools in the fight against aphids, thrips, scale insects and caterpillars.
  • The hoverfly’s lifespan is approximately one month, and their life cycle takes place in four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult (imago).
