Bathed in lavender and gasoline
The King of Quips has spoken!The meek shall inherit the earth...
Indeed, I think they also contribute to fogged headlight lens.Its normal.
Wash those bastages off within three days or they will etch your paint
"But why are they attracted to roads and vehicles? As it turns out — tests have shown that lovebugs are attracted to automobile exhaust that has been irradiated with UV light (i.e., sunlight). Why? It has been proposed that the chemicals in car exhaust, aldehydes and formaldehydes, are similar to the chemicals released by decaying organic matter. (they lay their eggs in decaying organic matter) "I've noticed they like direct sunlight and are attracted to idling cars. IDK if it is the noise/vibration or heat being put off, but they tend to swarm idling cars. They're dumb, and harmless.
Not sure if they will eat them, apparently they are bitter.Bats. Florida needs millions of bats.
Build a bat cave, and they will come.
I found out they have a larger cousin that also does not bite, but might do some damage if you take a direct hit while say, cruising on a bay boat. Thwaack!We had a warm spring this year, and a lot of rain. I noticed the first ones in March, which is the earliest I ever saw them.
Good thing they don't bite LOL.
Yes, in open wheeled racing, pretty much everyone uses tear off shields to keep their vison intact. All the closed faced helmets I ever owned, came with a visor with little buttons on the side where you alternately stretch and layer tear offs with their little handles sticking out, making it easy to just grab and tear off when they become fouled.Someone could invent a product for road vehicles similar to what we used back when I endurance raced off road on two wheels - we used "tear offs" or "roll offs". They were a must in wet conditions. I bet @WeeWilly has seen a similar product for car windscreens during his road racing?
