love bugs

LovebugsI hate love bugs. I really do. They are all around our house right now. And they are dead inside my house. So that’s good and bad: good they are dead, bad because we gotta clean them up.

I used to believe they were here because of an experiment at the University of Florida gone awry. Alas, not true. Snopes proved it an urban legend once again.

They do come out twice a year — spring and fall — for a week or so. But it’s bad when they swarm. They usually swarm after long periods of rain. Now that Rita has finally gotten out of here, the love bugs are swarming again.

What a pain.

    It’s nice not dealing with those anymore here in Budapest.
