Whats this strange bug called?
Question:So, for the last few nights its been kinda warm here (Rare for England) and I've left my window open. Each night I get these horrible looking fly/wasp/mosquito things come inside.
They are orangy/red with a really long abdomen/tail. They have two wings and long legs. They look really nasty.
if you are near a stream/pond, I would bank on mayflies. google it. One thing to keep in mind is that the only insects that truely have two wings are flies and strepsipterans. The rest have four though some may appear to have two. You may also be seeing a crane fly (google Tipulidae)
ive seen those too i thought they were giant mesqutoes
sound like damsel flies. they are harmless and also a predator to other pest (insects).
