Mouche à scie

No it is not that, asked in the garden shop where they sell most things for pests but just got the Gallic shrug

    Try asking about "tenthrède" instead.

    The article below suggests that the best solution is to attract birds which will eat the larvae themselves or feed them to their nestlings in short order.   They also mention a solution of pyrethrum and black soap if you really want to spray but it will likely kill beneficial insects too.
