    I read the article about sweat bee’s and it says that “they don’t bite or sting” Yes they do sting. Just wondering why your article says they don’t

    Thank you for your comment. I have passed your question on to our Entomologist. I would expect that you would hear from him in the next few days.

    Thanks again!

    Sweat bees sting,hover flies,also called Corn flies Do Not.

  4. The resemblance of hover flies to stinging insects is an effective defense for them. Here is a fact sheet that provides some extra information on these beneficial insects and the stingers that they resemble.

    Also, sweat bees are actually bees in the order Hymenoptera which includes wasps, other bees (including the European honey bee) and ants. Hover flies are in the order Diptera which includes houseflies and horse flies among so many other flies. While they are both incredibly beneficial, these two flying insects ARE NOT the same. Please consider correcting this misinformation in this publication and subsequent publications.
