The Narcissus Bulb Fly is a member of a large group of flies that called Hover or Flower Flies. This group is further divided into a group called Bee Mimics because they look a lot like bees, but don't sting. In North America, the Narcissus Bulb Fly is actually an import from Europe. It gets its name because the larvae feed on the bulbs of daffodils. It is now found across the United States and most of southern Canada.
