Love is in the air?
Lovebugs are swarming the roads in such large numbers that they are causing problems for drivers.
Staff Report - Sep 21, 2006
Pesky love bugs were so thick in St. Charles Parish before cooler weather rolled in that drivers were seen busily cleaning their windshields at gas stations.
County agent Renee’ Schmidt said in a recent report that heavy rains the last couple of months have spawned a very healthy fall population. Lovebugs are swarming the roads and fields in such large numbers that they are causing problems for drivers. Lovebugs smashing on the windshield can cause very real visibility problems. And when they cover the grill they can block the air intake, causing the engine to overheat. Love bugs also damage the paint finish of cars and trucks.
