Love Bug Love: Doin' the Deep South Hokey Pokey
This narrative non-fiction article of around 1,500 words offers a humorous explanation of the mating habits of the amorous flying insects that swarm in the Deep South twice a year--usually in spring and September. "Love bugs," more correctly named Plecia nearctica, belong to Family Bibionidae.
Like creeping Kudzu that covers the Deep South's countryside, love bugs are part of our culture in my home state, Ala-dang-Bama. During their visits, our passionate visitors arrive in swarms and are easily found in the most compromising position imaginable. The little boogers will climb atop virtually anything to . . . to . . . well, to be perfectly frank, to live up to their name. I mean, they aren't called "Love Bugs" for nothing. Let me tell you a thing or two about love bug love. I will attempt to make this a PG-13 explanation.
It won't be easy. . .
