Robber flies are fast-flying predators of the insect world. Those in the genus Laphrai, are hairy and resemble bumblebees. Many Robber Flies pass the day perching and waiting. They prefer open areas in forests or meadows. When prey comes by, they dash out and catch it with their long and strong legs. Some feed on wasps, bees and flies and even larger insects like dragonflies.
