Eww, yeah, they're out here too.  I've got them all over my car.

Fer thems of you who don't know what a "Love Bug" is, it is a little fly, that during mating season (right now) Joins at the anus with its mate, Permanently.  They come out in swarms when the weather gets about this temperature and wreak havoc on paint jobs.

My son just got back from a business trip to Houston. He said they're all over the place there too. I hate the little buggers. If you don't get them off right away they'll eat right into the paint.....and getting them off is no easy chore either.
