One of my co-workers just got back from Atlanta (8 hour drive) and he said that he had never seen so many love bugs in his life !!! He had sprayed the front of his mini-van down with Rain X Bug and Tar Protective shield before he left and then he sprayed the front of the van off with a hose when he got home and all of the love bugs just slid off of the van ???
Worth a try !!!

Sounds like a good idea. Some have suggested using "Pam" cooking spray. Take it from me, doooon't do that! Bugs do come off easy but what a greasy mess, especially if the stuff heats up in the sun

I've used Rejex with moderate success. Bugs still have to be wiped off but removal is easier.

I have to make a 100 mile trip next week through the thickest of the bugs. Maybe I'll try the RainX.

If you have Formula 303 available.. it's great to put on the endcaps. Not much sticks to it.. an it's great for your fiberglass finish.

A friend of mine just told me a trick...

He uses Bounce dryer sheets to take the bugs off. Just wet them and rub, they come right off. It's allittle gooey on your hands, but it works best that I have found.

Just returned today from Disney in Fl. Never saw so many bugs in my life. Flew down so didn't have to deal with this problem.

I tried out the Rain X Bug and Tar Protective Shield this week with little success against love bugs. I found that the critters stuck to the rig the same as without the product. I did notice that removing them from the front of the truck seemed a little easier, but scrubbing with a mesh sponge was still needed. The product may be good for the average bug splatter, but seems to be no match for lovebugs, at least here in central FL.
