Wednesday is my day to randomly choose a word from the Merriam Webster dictionary and post it to my blog.
So as I flip through the pages of Merriam Webster's Dictionary, my eyes comes to rest on the word.....
tach·i·nid \ˈta-kə-nəd, -ˌnid\ noun [NL Tachinidae, from Tachina, genus of flies, from Greek tachinos fleet, from tachys swift]
First Known Use: 1888 : any of a family (Tachinidae) of bristly usually grayish or black dipteran flies whose parasitic larvae are often used in the biological control of insect pests.
Thank you for stopping by
Have a beautiful day
