Carpet protector bug be gone?

OK, I know this sounds a little strange but here goes. We use the carpet protector film when we find ourselves in a muddy, wet, or dusty situation in our living-room where it is a high traffic area. The stuff works great and is cheap. We also use it to cover our screen door to keep the AC in without having to use the big door, works great also. Now to the question.........any body try this on the front to keep the bugs from sticking? We,re leaving soon for a 5,000+ mile trip and I am going to try it in a small section as a test unless I'm not the first to try it. We just bought 4 rolls 24in. X 50ft. for $6.80 a roll.

I would love to find out how it works. I did put a copper screen in front of my radiators and it was not to hard to clean off.

I would worry about heat or UV bonding it to the surface. Good luck on the test, hope it works!

i buy it at home depot sure saves the carpet when the weather is rainy as about 7 months a year in the northwest. i have also used it to cover broken skylight for almost 3 weeks waiting for replacement ( camping world suggested this) in December with lots of rain. it left no residue on fiberglass but it was cold not hot

Thanks for the responses and ideas. I was planning on using it only when traveling and when stopped for a week or longer I would remove it.

As an over the road trucker I find one of the best applications to the front of the ehicle to keep the bugs from sticking is to spray PAM on the vehicle's front. Then when you fuel up you use a squeegy to clean the windshield, also you the squeegy to clean the front of your rig. Bugs come off slicker than ever, not stuck like dry snot.
