Mosquito Hawks - Jumbo Sized Mosquitoes ???

mosquito hawkMany home owners have been experiencing an invasion of what appears to be mosquitoes on steroids. Even though these insects resemble giant mosquitoes, they are actually Crane Flies, aka "mosquito hawks". 

Fortunately, unlike mosquitoes, Crane Flies do not bite, and in fact some lack mouth parts altogether. They are similar to mosquitoes however, in that they require an aquatic or damp area to lay eggs and for larval development. 

Crane Flies tend to congregate around porches and patios because they are attracted to light. Fortunately, they generally only have one generation per year, making them more of a nuisance during their short life span rather than a chronic pest. 

Because crane flies require water or a damp environment for their life cycle, just as mosquitoes do, if you are experiencing a problem with them, you may be a prime candidate for a mosquito invasion as well.
