|Hi I'm new to gardening. I'm growing in containers. This insect is flying around my strawberry flowers and blueberry flowers. Does anyine know what kind of insect this is and if it's pollinating my flowers?

|The image isn't clear enough for me to make a positive identification. It is either some type of fly or a little wasp. Wasps eat pollen and/or other insects. In either case, a fly or wasp is not likely to cause your strawberries or blueberries any harm.
It is not some type of chewing/sucking bug or beetle which would be a cause for concern perhaps.

| with Bill. Wasps and flies of these types are usually considered beneficial insects.
