Cranefly

Fly Cranefly 300x225 Cranefly

  • Mistaken for giant mosquitoes, the cranefly does not bite.
  • Craneflies range from 8 to 65 mm and are identified by their brown, gray, or gold coloring.
  • They look like giant mosquitoes due to their stilt-like legs and thin body.
  • Females even have a long ovipositor which may look like what a mosquito uses to bite you, however its sole purpose is to deposit eggs into the soil.
