We live in Florida. Bugs not too bad this year. Before you hit the roads spray Pam (used for cooking) on a rag and apply a light coat to front surfaces. Bugs will rinse off easily after you get to your destination.

I remember reading some place that the chemicals in Pam will do more harm to your vehicle's paint than the bugs can. Here is one quote that I found on the 'Net:

Quote:
Myth #1 Cooking Spray

“Pam cooking spray will protect your paint.” Just the opposite, not only will cooking spray help the love bugs stick to the front of your car but it will actually “cook“ or embed the spray and anything on the surface into your car's paint.

Drove from So. Fl. To Western N.C. A few days ago and didn't see any. We had a few pre dawn bugs that came off easy at the first fuel stop ( thanks Rejex )and then nothing more.

Love Bugs

We'll be married 36 years in October.

Lizards are plentiful and seeing more Humming birds this year.

Bugs are mostly spiders.

Thanks, I will have to look that up. I have used this method for several years and the bugs came off easily and I didn't see any damage. I do wash it off right away so I don't know what would happen if you leave it on.
