National Insect Week returns in 2018

Dipterists Forum

Dipterists Forum

The Dipterists Forum is the society for the study of true flies (Diptera). It was established in 1993 to study every aspect of the lives of flies, including the habitats they require. The Forum’s major achievement to date has been to map the UK distribution of several groups of species but there is still much to be done (e.g. the immature stages of most species are still unknown).

Predatory ladybirds and parasitoid wasps are used as a biological control for pest insects such as aphids.
