For about two weeks, I was hearing a buzzing when I sat at my computer. The computer is near a wall next to a window. I finally figured out the buzzing was coming from either outside the apartment or between the window screen and the window. I heard the buzzing on and off for two weeks.
The other day I came home and found the biggest, ugliest, fly I have ever seen! Not a tachinid fly, way too large. It was making the same buzzing that I had been hearing. I couldnt get close enough to it to try to kill it. It was dive bombing me, dive bombing the computer, it was pretty scary! It was so big, I thought it was going to lift the lid off my aquarium or something!
Anyway, I had some water in the kitchen sink and it drowned. I did not turn it over before flushing it down the toilet. From the back, it looked to be 4 times the size of a house fly. I thought my problem was done, but this morning, I heard more buzzing coming from the same place. In my other post, I mentioned a caterpillar that I had to let pupate outside the aquairum because someone was trying to eat his leaf. Since everyone else is J hooking, I put him back in the aquarium.
Anyone have any ideas on what type of fly this could be? Is he after my caterpillars? He is too big to get to them but this is freaking me out!
