  1. Hi. Interesting read, but in fact it’s only the female horsefly that bites. Males are quite harmless and lack biting mouth parts entirely. Females need a blood meal to help with egg development. The captured Cleg fly in the photos is a female, so once she was free, she would have been very capable of giving you a bite. 🙂

    • thanks for pointing this out Malcolm.
      I don’t suppose there’s an easy way of telling the sexes apart when they land on you?
