Swarms of Lovebugs Infesting Different Cities in Seoul

[elementor-template id=”4408″]

Swarms of lovebugs, a species of march fly, are infesting different cities of metropolitan areas, including Eunpyung-gu, Mapo-gu, Seodaemun-gu, and Goyang-si. They are sneaking into people’s houses, cars, subways, and just everywhere.

Experts are pointing to the climate change as a major cause of their sudden appearance. This year’s severe drought might have caused lovebugs, preferring humidity, to appear at once in the rainy season.

The name ‘lovebug’ comes from the two male and female insects’ behavior of sticking together during and after mating. A lovebug is known as a useful insect that eats pests and purifies the environment. Although harmless, their creepy appearance is causing disgust and discomfort to residents.

Different districts are setting up the emergency pesticide team to get rid of lovebugs.
