Tiger Bee Fly

Xenox tigrinus


According to the Urban Wildlife Guide; female Tiger Bee Flies lay their eggs at the entrance of Carpenter Bee nests. Tiger Bee larva usually feed on the Carpenter Bee larva in the pupal stage. I often find them around my house possibly keeping the population of Carpenter Bees that live in the wood portions of my porch in check.
