Love bugs are back

The love bugs are starting to get real bad again here in Fl. What does everyone use on their windshield to make removing the little guys easier?

Wet towels before the critters dry out has always worked for me.

Below the windshield, apray some Pam on the front of the coach and this will help you remove them easily.

My local RV Dealer suggested spraying Pam on the whole front end. He said it gets a little messy, but protects the paint from the bugs.

Cheap dryer sheets. Wet the front of the coach, wet the dryer sheets and rub on the bug splatters. Wash off the residue.

We just started using Rejex this spring and I really like how it allows things to be cleaned off with much less effort than before.

When we lived in Ocala, Fl seems like they appeared for a month or so in the spring and fall. Boy, do I miss those love bugs.

We vacationed in Florida one year in May and could not go outside for the love bugs. I cleaned them off the front with water and a brush before they get crusty. We are thinking of going to Florida next week but will reconsider if the love bug is in full season. We would arrive Sunday Oct 17th.

HOT soapy water works very well. Just don't leave them on there for a few days.

I have read in another post that if you put a lawn sprinkler on the front of the coach and let it run to soften the bugs before cleaning it makes them come right off. I have never tried it but it seems to make sense.
