Question: What is this strange flying insect?
(Posted by: caiohme on 2012-03-25 12:00:49)
I have recently came across a strange looking flying insect in my garden. it looks alot like a bee, as in its hairy body, but it is orange and black striped and comes from the ground, especially soil areas. around these areas are little holes which i gather may be air holes, cos when i covered one over one of these insects came flying out of another!!!! would like to know if they are harmful to children and animals please, as my dog seems to be doing alot of digging up of them. thanks in advance
