While this bug may look like a mosquito, it is not, it is known as a Crane Fly and they mean you no harm.

The Crane Fly is really a Tipulidae and does no harm to humans or animals. In fact, they don't bite at all!

The only real damage that they can do is in the larva stage and when they feed off the roots of plants that could lead to root damage.

Overall, The Crane Fly only lives a short amount of time and does no harm to humans or pets, so if you see one, let it be.
