We don't get them here along the coast, but when we drive inland LOOKOUT. One night we took the convertible for a ride inland, and when I put my hand up over the windshield, I could feel the things crashing into my hand. The windshield wipers could not keep up with the dead bodies. The next day I saw the dead ones on my front bumper - these bugs are a mess!!!!!
nah those cockroach things you are talking about are called palmetto bugs . the love bugs remind me of the lighting bugs up north without the lights and stuck together (hence the name "love" bugs ) . when they are heavy they can be a pain . I have seen a few but nothing to write home about .
May and September are Lovebug months. They are called Lovebugs because they are two bugs stuck together that fly around and into things, especially car windshields and bumpers. They only last for the month, some seasons are worse than others. So far, this September I have only seen a few. TerryC
They are anout the size of a skinny, black house fly and their sole purpose in life is to reproduce (and mess up the paint on the front of your car, lol). I don't think they have any natural enemies. Nothing eats them, not even the anoles.
The palmetto bugs (or something very similar) that Beanie mentioned are called water bugs in SE Va, you might know them by that name.
