This week I just hit the beginning of the FL lovebug season on my way back home. Probably only had a couple of hundred splats. Spent 10 minutes scrubbing at a gas station just to get a clean spot in front of the driver using the station's worn out scrubber/squeege. When I got home I brushed off the worst with a long handled brush with soap and water. Then I attacked the stickies with a scrub pad I got at the ACE hardware checkout in FL. The gal said it is the best scrubber for lovebugs. It looked like aluminum shavings, but I believe it was mylar as it didn't scratch. That easily took off the remaining solids, but I still had a lot of staining. So I grabbed the black streak remover I had and it worked great with the scrubbing pad to finish the cleanup.

There is a dollar store product called fantastic. It is a petroleum based cleaner that is safe enough to put in your laundry. It is non toxic and I spray it on, let sit for 5 minutes then spray with a hose. They come off with minimal effort. The secret is to rehydrate the remnants of the bugs
