Unknown Minnesota Insect

It has the legs of a daddy-long-legs spider, the body of a mosquito (although much longer) and looks like it’s spooked with its buggy eyes.

I have no clue what this insect is although my local neighbor boy tells me they are everywhere and are harmless. Hmmm … he says that most bugs here are harmless — should I believe him? As long as it doesn’t invite itself inside my home I will call him harmless.

Anyone know what it is?

  1. Looks like a crane fly to me. Crane flys supposedly eat mosquitos, so you don’t want to kill them–IF that’s what it is. 😀
