The Florida Cooperative Extension Service has a great site, Solutions for Your Life, that presents information on topics that we deal with every day. Several things in this large site deal specifically with things Floridian; however, one topic, lovebugs, impacts daily life throughout the South.
For instance, did you know that lovebugs are attracted to gasoline and diesel fumes? Guess that explains why there are so MANY on the highways. They’re also attracted to fresh, light-colored paint, so DON”T paint your house during lovebug season (May – Sept.) or you’ll end up with a sticky, lovebuggy mess!
Check out the Lovebug section of Solutions for Your Life – an make sure you visit the rest of the site too. There is a ton of great info here that you’re sure to find helpful and interesting.
