Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Lovebugs are also known as March flies. During and after mating, adult pairs remain coupled, even in flight, for up to several days. They are inch long with a pair of smoky-colored wings, a black slender body, and a red thorax.

Lovebugs do not bite or sting and are primarily found as a nuisance to drivers. They travel in swarms along highways, because they are attracted to exhaust fumes, which resemble decomposing plant debris.
