Invasion of the beesquitoes! The scary-looking inch-long monsters buzzing the UK’s gardeners

What's the buzz? The rare terrifying insect that is striking fear into the hearts of gardeners

With a long, menacing spike protruding from its furry head, the sinister-looking insect below could be straight out of a horror film.

But fear not, for there is no sting in the tail with this large bee fly, which could soon be coming to a garden near you.

Despite its rather monstrous appearance, the exotic insect – official name Bombylius major – is actually a bee mimic and completely harmless to humans.

Dubbed ‘beesquitoes’ because they look like a cross between a bumblebee and a mosquito, hundreds have been spotted in recent weeks in the West Midlands and East Anglia.

Although they are native to the UK, in previous years they have rarely been seen in this country except near marshland, and are far more common in places like North America and Europe.
