Nature Notes 8/20/12: Love Bugs

Love bugs have invaded Fairhope. Those pesky little pairs of black bugs are here. Just moments after stopping my car in my driveway, it was covered two, by two, by two more. It was rather creepy. Since they seemed to like the driver’s side of the car more, I was able to escape through the front passenger door without them dropping into the car. Glancing over at my husband’s car I saw nothing. Not a bug anywhere on it. Why? Don’t know but I cannot wait until they die off. Hope there are lots of hungry birds and dragonflies in Fairhope. Food is plentiful.
