Florida Bugs


Lovebugs
Lovebugs
A common bug in Florida is the Love Bug. These are black bugs that mate as they fly, thus the name, Love Bug. They are attracted to the odor of car exhaust that has been exposed to sunlight. They like to hang out around the highways and your first encounter with a lovebug will be as it hits your windshield. Lovebugs are prevalent from April to May and again from late August to mid-September. Clean off the dead ones from your car as soon as possible. The acid in the bugs will corrode the finish of your car
Dragonflies

Dragonflies are nicknamed the "Florida Mosquito Hawk" as this is one of their main diets. They are able to catch flying insects and are very active near dusk when the mosquitoes start looking for warm bodies to snack on.
