As soon as you leave the city you can just about guarantee you will be bugged. No, nothing to do with ASIO, the CIA or the KGB, just your everyday insect type thingy hanging onto the grille of your motor vehicle.
At times they can be prolific, such as this example during a locust plague, or when the bogong moths are spawning (you can eat them, but probably not the ones off the bonnet) or when the midges are in profusion. Take heart though, it's the reason we have such prolific bird life...............and you can get them as a hood ornament too if you're not careful!
