Do all Daddy Long Legs fly?

Best Answers

In daddy longlegs, regular males are called alpha males, while the males that look like females are called beta males. In all systems with alpha and beta males, there are never that many beta males in the population at any one time. “You can never have more than a certain proportion of these sneaky males,” Clouse says. read more

The nickname "daddy longlegs" may also refer to a crane fly, which is a true fly and a member of the order Diptera. They have six legs and wings and look like gigantic mosquitoes. Crane flies do not pose a threat to people either. read more

Numerous other common names have been applied to the crane fly. Many of the names are more or less regional in the U.S., including mosquito hawk, mosquito eater, gallinipper, and gollywhopper. They are also known as daddy longlegs around the world, not to be confused with daddy-long-legs that refers to arachnids of the order Opiliones or the family Pholcidae. read more
