Lovebugs S4 :x S4 [Image: 42684d1272726504-anyone-ever-built-tent-...vebugs.jpg]

Damnit. They're back. If you're driving down get a screen.
How far north do they go?
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Yeah it's that time of year again. They were floating around me at the nude resort. Good thing they dont bite!
Here's what Wikipedia says- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovebug
Different eyes see different things. Different hearts beat on different strings.
But there are times for you and me when all such things agree.

I "splatted" a few of them today.

If you have a convertible and you are stopped for a light, you'll probably gather a few passengers in seconds.

Aggravating little buggers, that's for sure.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Aren't they cute little bug(gers)?

Today is 5x on the yuck oh meter. Going to wash then just smear a coat of wax on the cars front then pressure clean it off next week. I wonder what the policy is on returning a rental coated with love bugs... If you'll be down here in the next couple of weeks please check.

I'm currently vacationing near Orlando, and I didnt see any lovebugs here.
They were all over the place at home.

Lovebug update.
Now I'm in Kissimmee at a nude resort and the things are everywhere!
Great swarms of flying-f**king insects wafting along the pool area, sending naked tourists into an arm flailing panic.
It's kinda cool to watch.

Thought they were gone so washed the car this morning. Had to wash it again this afternoon. Don't use RainX while they're out. Found out the hard way...

What do they do that requires having the vehicle washed?

lol those people in those states should breed wild quail and also get some robins to live there. those are the natural predators of the lovebugs, and I'm sure with enough birds the numbers could be cut down.

hey, it worked for this one town that had an huge mosquito problem. now they don't have whole fogs of swarming mosquitoes anymore. forget the town name though.

We have birds already. It's Florida!
Nothing really seems interested in eating them. They have acidic blood that ruins paint and probably tastes bad. Even lizards dont seem interested.
They only swarm twice a year for a few weeks. It's not really a problem.
I rather like them. Horny little buggers.

I am sure quail could be hunted down there after a time..

Whatever those bugs are, how do they compare to Michigan Fishflies (also known as Mayflies)?

That time of year again. Get used to them V.
It's only twice a year for a few weeks and they dont bite.
The fall swarm dosnt seem as bad as the spring swarm.

William,

I've seen mayflies so numerous they almost had to halt a Braves night game. The outfielders could barely keep them out of their faces. Lucky they don't do much besides fly around.
