This little guy(and a load of his mates) have been hanging around outside, and at times just inside, my front door. Curious to know what it is? I think it might be a weevil of some sort, but I am really clueless. I've had a look around on the forum, but I couldn't see any that was like this one.Thank you for any help!
It is a louse fly (Diptera, Hippoboscidae). It looks like Craeterina pallida, but the image should have been somewhat better to make a sure identification. It lives on swallows and swifts. Do you have nests of house martins or swifts in your house?
Thank you very much! I think we used to have a nest somewhere but no action there for a year or two. But could very well be that, will try to get a better picture to make sure. Any idea how I might get rid of them? Just don't like getting them in the house really.
