(Order Dipetera Family Asilidae)
The Robber Fly is a common fly in North America. It ranges in size from 5 to 30 mm. Some species
of Robber Fly have stout, hairy bodies and resemble bumble bees, while others have slender elongated
bodies and more closely resemble damselflies. The top of the heads are hollowed between the eyes
and they often have bearded faces. If the Robber fly is handled improperly it can bite. They are known
to attack insects larger than themselves.
