The syrphe
Wheel from April at October, the adults visit all kinds of flowers, in the meadows as on the bushes; they however prefer the buttons of gold and Ombellifères. The larvae nourish plant louses, the adults of nectar. 2 to 3 annual generations follow one another, according to the climatic conditions. The alternation of the colors is used as protection with the insect (it resembles a wasp); some of its natural enemies are however not let frighten. True hummingbirds, these insects control to perfection the flight on the spot and are able to change place at high speed, with a considerable acceleration (frequency of the beats of wings: 300Hz; 14 times the acceleration of terrestrial gravity!

Characteristic: -13mm, colouring like the wasp, reddish, black yellow face in the medium, brown antennas with front, face of the yellow head. Medium: abundant in wood, the fields and the lawns.
