Love Bug Season Again

I started to see the dreaded Love Bugs again today at home which is South Louisiana. This season should last 4 to 6 weeks.

Rejex on the front end including windshield ( I do the whole MH ) does a great job. "Nothing sticks to it but the shine"

I had a Lexus that needed the hood re painted because I didn't / couldn't get them all off after a nine hour drive from Atlanta :(.

When we came back to the New Orleans after staying 3 weeks with my parents in North Louisiana due to Hurricane Katrina the Love Bugs ruined our luggage we had on top of our SUV.

They are called telephone bugs in SE Tx. They say hello then hang up.

Ah yes, May and September: the seasons of Love.
These are the seasons when some areas are avoided. I had to endure it long ago, having lived there. It was enough!

No problems if applied correctly. Rejex really works as advertised!

Try the :Love Bug Eraser" to remove easily. We carry a sprayer with windshield washer. when ever I pull in or stop if I got bugs I spray the whole front of the coach. Use Love Bug eraser to get tjhem off and then spray again. On long trips after spraying I often use one of those spray wax's on front for remainer of day, works for us. safe travels ed
