Lovebugs have Taken Over Northwest Louisiana and We Know Why
I have never hated a bug more in my life than I do Love-bugs. Well, mosquitoes are pure evil and comes in second place. But I think we can all agree that these bugs have been a nuisance to the Ark-La-Tex for the past two months.
Apparently, the swarm of love-bugs in our area is caused by the cool and wet summer we had this year, according to the information LSUS Professor Beverly Burden told the Red River Radio Network. Since the heat didn't get too high and it was very rainy it gave the perfect breeding ground for these heathens.
There really isn't anything to worry about with these bugs. Yes, they are super annoying but they don't bite or sting. They do, however, will erode the paint on your vehicle. According to U.S. News, the acid in their guts will mess up the paint on your vehicle. So wash your car often!
