love bug

diese Spezies paart sich staendig, und klebt in riesen Mengen auf unserer Windschutzscheibe

The love bug (also known as march fly, honeymoon fly, telephone bug, kissybug and double-headed bug) (scientific name Plecia nearctica) is a small flying insect common to the southern United States, especially along the Gulf Coast. It is nuisance to motorists driving quickly enough to spatter the insects on their windshields. They are acidic and can affect the paint on the vehicles they collide with if not washed off. They seem to be attracted to lighter colored objects (white fence posts are usually blackened with them during the peak season), but can accumulate anywhere.
