Hoverfly under the Abate scope camera

28 Aug

Here are some interesting images we took at Abate Pest Control of Hoverfly using our scope camera.

There are about 250 different hoverfly species in Britain. You can generally see plenty of hoverflies in the garden throughout the summer.


Hoverfly are brightly-coloured insects and look like wasps but they are flies and do not sting.


Hoverfly larvae are varied too – some even resemble small slugs.

They all have different feeding habits. Adults eat and drink nectar and eat pollen and honeydew. Some species feed on dead insects. The larvae of different species eat different things.
