They're Back!

Love bugs are back in East Texas.

Local car washes are busy with customers trying to get rid of them.  The Excel Car Wash in Lufkin even has a marquee dedicated to the critters.

It can be hard to clean the bugs off at home, but these guys specialize in taking off the sticky mess love bugs leave behind on your car, especially the mess on your windshield.

Supervisor, Nehemiah Robertson said, "We have a water solution here - just soapy water - to weaken them, and then we put the degreaser on there and it mostly cuts them off pretty good."

You can also get rid of love bugs yourself by putting degreaser in a spray bottle. Experts say using that on your car will help you wash them away.
