Today an insect was flying around me and my family but I wasn't sure what type of insect it was. I could tell from the noise that the wings were making while it was flying that it was some type of bee or biting fly, but I don't know of a word for that type of description. To describe it to them, all I could think of is "flying, stinging/biting insect" but that's a bit long and seems out of place.
I tried researching it and the closest term I found was hymenoptera:
Hymenoptera: Hymenoptera is the third-largest order of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, and ants - Wikipedia
However, this is more broad than the word I was looking for. I'm looking for a term specific to flying insects that bite or sting.
Is there such a word? It could be colloquial or scientific.
