CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Driving home from work this week you may have thought it was raining, when in fact it was bugs hitting your windsheild.
After just one day of driving, hundreds of these bugs can splat up against your car, and they're peeling off the paint. They're often referred to as kissybugs or lovebugs but there's really nothing lovely about them. No, they don't bite, but they sure can ruin the appearance of your car.
"They are going to definitely eat the paint off, because the bugs have acid in them," says Bobby Cooper of Lewis Quick Lube and Car Wash in Cairo.
Their acidic bodies cause harm after they're dead and decorating your car.
"For about two weeks they get on there really thick, and they're hard to get off, in fact you can hardly get them off," says driver Edward Crew.
If you can't make it to a car wash a simple mixture of soap and water will do the trick. But try and clean it every couple of days before they can bake in the sun.
But for those of you who have white vehicles, you may have to scrub more than others. Lovebugs are attracted to light colors, espeically white.
The lovebug flight happens twice a year, late spring, and late summer. Car wash employees say for some reason, it's worse this year.
But the problem will come to an end when it starts to get cold, giving you and your car a break from the mess. Feedback
