Here in Houston we are getting attacked constantly by Lovebugs and it can leave someone irritated and annoyed. they seem to always mate mid air and we just want to say get a room. The Chronicle, states that those relationships lasts around 56 hours. ( That's a long time to be well mating).
The bugs just live long enough to eat nectar, screw, lay eggs and go see their bug-maker. lol
HERE ARE ANSWERS TO YOUR LOVEBUG QUESTIONS:
1. Lovebugs swarms are too large and pesticides won't work very well.
2. Lovebugs don't bite, don't sting, they just lay eggs in moist soil. Ditches and swap areas are their preferred habitats.
3. They can mess with paint jobs and or course be killed by your car going at high speed (the heat an make them stick to your car).
4. They are infatuated with car emissions and black top roads. It seems like they are a little special.
*THEY ARE ONLY ALIVE FOR TWO AND A HALF DAYS SO DON'T WORRY TOO MUCH.
I just want them to be gone because I have to use my ninja moves when I'm outside.
