Love Bugs are Back on the Suncoast

Debunking Love Bug Myths.... They are not the result of some experiment gone-wrong, at any University in Florida, which is a story most people have heard. They also have nothing to do with eating mosquitoes.

In fact....

These bugs are native to Central America; the best guess as to how they came to these United States, suggests they possibly went undiscovered as stowaways who arrived by ship in Texas or even Louisiana, in the early 1920's. They soon they migrated into Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, etc.. in the 1940's.
