use Turtle Wax Car Wash with a window squeegee

1/ wet window and front with soapy water
2/ scrub the window with your squeegee
3/take a micro fiber cloth and put it over your squeegee and dry the window
4/ bugs are gone

Continue the same procedure n the bottom and bugs are all gone

enjoy I just did mine and worked well

We apply Rejex to our coach and most bugs including Love Bugs will come off just using a regular garden hose with a sprayer on it. We apply it in the spring and fall and then apply an extra coat to the front including the windshield before each trip. It isn't cheap but it works better than anything else I have tried. Follow the directions and remove all of the old wax before applying.

I'll post about this one more time....Dow Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner. Out of direct sun, spray it on. let it sit for 5-10 minutes, and brush it off. I use a soft bristle brush on a telescoping handle dipped in plain water. Bugs will come off, and just rinse with hose. Won't hurt paint, glass, plastic. rubber, ect.

I just use my hose and cleaning brush. Wet the windshield and let it sit then put dish washing liquid on the brush and scrub the bugs off. for the paint I use rejeX a few times a year. Use the brush and hose there too.
