    1. Hi BRC and Pensioner – the hoverfly looks a lot like a wasp, pollinates like a bee, and hovers like a helicopter. Very wonderful little critter to have in the garden.

        1. Hi Pensioner – I’m a live and let live kind of gardener when it comes to all bugs except the Red Lily Beetle. I hand picked and killed those ones because they are a European import that has no natural enemies here!
