Is this a wasp?

Posted: 05/08/2016 at 13:49

looks like a hoverfly to me though it's hard to see.

wasps hornets have very thin waists (not like me  )

and 2 pairs of wings where hoverflies have only one pair of wings.

bees have 2 pairs of wings as well

yours looks like just one pair

ID please!

I like Chilean pine even less than obelixx does

what are you mulching with? the caryopteris won't like anything that makes it too wet.

If you mulch now on dry soil, unless you get really heavy prolonged rain, it will be absorbed by the mulch and the soil will stay dry.

Plants that disappear in winter can be mulched over but those that have some leaves in winter won't like it.

Plants that like hot dry conditions won't want to be mulch with manure.

this is my theory-of mulch. Others may do it differently
