I have a good size patch of mint in my side yard that attracts hordes of flies 
and a very thin species of wasp or wasp-like insect.  It creeps me out to walk 
by the plants because all the flies take off at once and it reminds me of 
something out of a sci-fi flick.  The wasp-like insect is very interesting 
looking.  Both types of insects are feeding off the light purple blossoms.
