Fetcherflies are insects found on the island of Vvardenfell and in the Tenmar Forest of Elsweyr[1]. Lone fetcherflies are harmless. However, when something approaches their nests, they will swarm and attack whatever they perceive as a threat. They emit a moderate amount of heat, singeing fur or hair on contact, and due to this heat, their nests often glow and have pores emitting smoke[2]. Occasionally, their nests become Hive Golems, which can move around independently. These golems are attracted to the destruction of regular hives, and will seek out those responsible.[2] [3]

Fetcherflies are used by some Ashlander anglers as a lure.[4] Fetcherfly husks stuffed with sea sponge make passable pin cushions,[5] and a puree of crushed fetcherflies can be used as an unorthodox ingredient in lotion.[6]
