Those Pesky Love Bugs

by Jessica Cervantez

You've probably seen them mainly on your car. Those pesky love bugs are here again.

No one likes those so called "love" bugs, but you just can't get away from them. The bugs cover windshields and you can see them all over the front of cars.

The easiest way to get rid of the love bugs is to leave it to the professionals, but if you want to do it yourself, remember scrubbing is key.

Rod Watt, King Sudz manager, said, "Soak, soak, soak, you have to get it soggy, if you don't you might as well forget about it."

Experts say it doesn't take long before the acid from the bugs starts ruining the paint on your car.

Watt said, "In this East Texas heat, it will take about three weeks."

You will see those love bugs twice a year, once in May and then again in September.
