A FREE Workshop on an introduction to hoverflies and their identification.
There are over 280 species of hoverfly in the UK and many of them are excellent mimics of bumblebees, honey bees and wasps. Adult hoverflies are important pollinators and the larvae of several species are controllers of aphids and other pest species.
This free online workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the diversity of hoverflies, identification of some of the commonly seen species and how to survey and monitor them using Flower-Insect-Timed Counts.
This is an online event that will involve a presentation and then a Question and Answer session with the opportunity to share an image (or two) for help with identification.
