We have Lovebugs in South GA and AL. Get running down between Cotton feilds for an hour and you come out the other end with the front of the vehicle black.

Looks like another project for our southern trips!
Thanks for the Tips Peter.

We get the lovebugs here in Florida, too. Why do dead lovebugs smell like fish? Can anybody answer that one for me?

We get the love bugs here too..........

I was working on one of my cars the other day and saw a number of them flitting around the front bumper. I thought it was sweet, they were picking out their final resting places ahead of time.

The screen is a good idea, the lovebugs will eat your paint

I NEVER saw a lovebug snacking on my paint. Now if you leave a dead lovebug on your paint, the paint will be etched permanently. But that's not the same as eating. Since they are in FL, GA and AL I'd expect the lovebugs would be more apt to eat Moonpies with RC Cola.

I mounted a similiar cloth behind the grill ahead of the radiator, used those same black tie locks.
Caught a lot of bugs on my last trip, and a new Volkswagen Beetle.
