Semi-Annual Pests Are Back

Love bugs are a common sight each spring and fall around here. There are love bugs everywhere in the air and all over the front of your car.

Not only is the mess they leave on your car annoying, but the experts warn the bugs can cause some serious damage to your vehicle’s paint job. That’s because the bugs are very acidic, and if they are left on your car too long they’ll eat away at your paint leaving permanent pit marks.

So when the love bugs bite the dust on your car, experts say its best to protect it by getting a car wash every three days or so.

They usually show up in northwest Florida twice a year and generally stay around three to four weeks each time.
