Identification key to the Laphria species It flies with a distinctly audible hum, giving humans the appearance of a bee or bumblebee. After mating, the females lay the eggs in tree trunks and rotten wood, usually in the boreholes of other insects. The Laphria larvae develop in the burrows of wood-dwelling insects and feed mainly on their larvae.
