After identifying an unusual insect for a homeowner today, the thank you email ended with a bang. Because I was able to quickly identify her pest, which her PMP had incorrectly insisted was a “bee”, she concluded, “[I guess] it’s best I change pest control companies.”
Could you identify this insect from this picture? Brachymeria
podagrica is a chalcid wasp parasitoid that attacks filth flies,
like those that feed on carrion.
Ouch… I hate to hear that.
Admittedly the insect was an obscure…
