The poet waxes “In the spring a young man’s fancy often turns to thoughts of Love!”
In this area the redneck waxes “in the spring a young man’s fancy often turns to thoughts of Love………BUGS!”
They’re everywhere. Those black and red bugs. They pile up on your grill and windshield. And if you don’t get them off soon they can damage the paint, or so the story goes.
Wikipedia says “The love bug (Plecia nearctica) is a species of March fly found in parts of Central America and the southeastern United States, especially along the Gulf Coast.It is also known as the honeymoon fly or double-headed bug. During and after mating, adult pairs remain coupled, even in flight, for up to several days.”
The only good news is when you hit one with your windshield, you get two!We are in Love Bug season. So enjoy it while you can.
