I have heard ever since I moved to this area about them and was warned that they could damage the paint. That is not true, they do not damage the pain but I have heard of people trying to remove them have damaged the paint. I have no idea how to prevent them from sticking to your vehicle. Maybe you could cover it with grease, but then it would be hard to see out the windshield (grin). Now there is one way to prevent this messy situation, is to only drive at night. Can you imagine that Love Bugs don't go out at night? Gee, I wonder what they do at night. . . Now, you all have a lovely day today, you hear?
