Came down I-75 from central Georgia to Tampa on Saturday and in southern GA ( fromm around Cordelle) to about Gainesville, we hit love bugs--- what a mess. It's just the beginning, more to come !

I had our motorhome detailed this weekend while we were staying at LazyDays resort in Tampa. No love bugs on the trip there. Coming home, I got splattered with them! At least I only had to clean the front of the motorhome.

When do they end? We are coming to Florida middle of November for a couple of weeks. Hope we don't get splattered then.

Hurricanes and Love Bugs - we try to plan our trips south to avoid both.

We washed vehicles Sunday and the CRV had them pretty bad. They should be gone in a couple of weeks. I have seen them worse, I think last year they were not bad at all, IMHO.

Thanks. Glad we will miss them. Heard they are quite the mess on the trucks and trailers.

Then after that they can fly to PA and eat the spotted lantern flies we have here over the last few years. Just a regular bug love fest!

Picked up my Fiver Sep 9 and noticed a few Love Bugs around. Trip to Tampa resulted in hosing off my Truck and Front Cap at each Campground stop (3) and when we got home before putting back into storage had to scrub it down. And even on the nozzle jet setting it wouldn't get them all off...
Need to remember not to travel in Sept...
