    We are heading to the Yacht Club in August. The third week to be exact. Just wondering if love bugs will impact our visit there, especially with SAB. I don't want to spend this type of money for SAB and get there and not be able to enjoy the pool area that the Beach/Yacht Club are so famous for because of the lovebugs.:crazy2: This is a deal breaker for me, no joke.

    We go almost every August around the same time as you are planning, and I've never had a problem with lovebugs at SAB.

    They are not usually bad in August, just annoying. They mainly fly around and land on white colored items. In Sept. when we go a lot, it can be very annoying with thousands mating!!! I even swallowed a pair one year ! Yuck! :surfweb:

    We have been four times that week of August and I don't think I ever saw any love bugs (actually they are flies, not bugs ;) ). They usually show up the second half of September. And they are only a nuisance when they are swarming/mating, they are completely harmless (except to the paint on your car).

    I agree with PP's. We have gone the third week of August several times. I have never noticed bugs. Mostly birds and little lizards.

    Started seeing lovebugs in Central Florida about a week ago.

    May and September are the usual months for lovebugs.

    Not real worried about seeing them, I just don't want to be there during the full blown force of it. If they are just starting to emerge when we are there, we can deal with that. And I am going to be borrowing my parents newer car to drive down there and it is WHITE! I don't want any type of damage to it because of these pest! Plus, paying good money for SAB is my other issue as well.:thumbsup2
