Flies inside Sweet Pea flower

Marj Doyle asked 9 years ago

Both last year and this year, my mother’s Sweet Pea has a small fly inside in the middle each Sweet Pea flower, and she does’t like giving small posies as gifts any more. What is the reason for these flies appearing and how should they be destroyed? Thanking you.

From the photograph, it is impossible to see which kind of insect it is, but in any case, the chances are that it is just sheltering there.
