Come And Get Your Love (Bugs)!

I don't know how you Florida folks can stand the Lovebugs this time of year. And, as sometimes happens, the last tropical storm that moved through FL a week (or so) ago brought some up to south GA. Y'all must spend a bunch of time getting those horny little buggers off your cars - and they will damage your paint. Anyway, if any FL folks are headed to south GA anytime soon... please take your Lovebugs back with you when you head back to FL. Thanks.

I was in Orlando last weekend and the front of my truck was plastered with them when I got there. They may not be in Orlando, but there are plenty between there and the GA/FL line. Fortunately, I went through torrential rain on the way back to GA and it beat most of them off. Nasty little buggers and there were lots of 'em on the golf course today.

A few years back near Orlando I drove thru swarms of the bugs. Waited 2 days to clean them off the front of my Corvette and the clear coat came off where they were. Ended up getting the nose repainted.

Probably, they usually last about 3-4 wks.

The only good thing about Lovebugs is... when they splatter on your vehicle, you kill two at a time.

Really bad here now. We call them Butt bugs from when my son was 8 that is what he called them the first time he saw them at Disney World. Now we live where they are at.. You can not keep your car clean unless you leave it in the garage. With the rain we have gotten this year almost 24 inches does it really matter?

I'm sure it works well but:

1.I don't have a gun like that
2. A good waxing like nu finsih on the front before I go works well to protect against the acids
3. painters tape on the leading edges
3. Any waterless or rinseless solution like turtle wax rinseless in a Windex bottle is good when you have no hose..

a complete soaking with hot water when you get home...always soak rather then SCRUB.....
