The fly can be found almost everywhere if one opens one’s sight. They are true flies though found comparatively little in number than the other flies. They belongs to the Asilidae family under order Dipetera. The interesting fact lies in their feeding habit. They, generally, are carnivorous and feed on insects. Yes, it is the reason behind their such a name(‘robber’). They sit and wait and jump over prey when time comes.
