True sawflies have a saw-like appendage right at the tip of their bodies, and from this, they get their name “sawflies.” The basal hymenopteran lineages have developed these saw-like ovipositor cutting and have been separately categorized into paraphyletic grouping. The female sawflies use this appendage to inject their eggs into upper leaf surface. Sawflies have phylogenetic relationships with wasps because they are Hymenopterans as well; however, they don’t have a tendency to sting people. Sawflies are rare to find because they don’t fly around on an average day. Mostly they can be sighted around flowers and buds where sawfly offspring cause damage to the foliage. These larval sawflies cause most of the harm in various ways as they feed on plants. You can observe the holes within leaves, and even worse these common pests can consume all the tissue between the veins of the leaves leaving them skeletonized. A low-level sawfly infestation can have the ability to do little cosmetic damage which can be stopped with pruning. Nevertheless, a large-scale infestation can completely destroy a full grown tree.

The latter is more prone to deposit eggs. In the larval stage, some flesh flies act as parasites of other insects. Flesh flies do not act as vectors to transmit disease. However, they can be particularly harmful to livestock, where they infect open wounds and burrow into healthy flesh. They are only a threat to human health in the case of any infected meat being consumed, which results in intestinal infections.
