Sarasota County

LIDO BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) – A woman’s fishing trip her husband and friends was ruined by a massive swarm of love bugs last week.

Dana Erickson and her husband Ross were fishing about three miles off Lido Beach at Silver Tooth Reef when the bugs swarmed.

“We gotta move. We have to get the hell out of here… We are getting taken over by bugs!” she exclaims in the video.

Dana said they had just caught two little red snappers, then had to leave. They were only on the water for about a half hour when the love bugs “attacked.”

She shared the video on her Facebook page, where it has almost 60,000 shares and over 17,000 comments.
