I am a avid fan of the Bounce softner sheets to remove the love bugs. Then I apply a new coating of "Protect All", and they hose right off with clear water or "water less" cleaner after the next days travel.

As a resident of Florida since 86 let me share a few things we have learned. The infamous LOVE BUGS come in both May and September. We have found that if you can get to your destination before 10AM you have a better chance of avoiding the little devils. (They must like to sleep in We too use dryer sheets, not necessarily a named brand. They appear to be the best thing we have found thusfar. The dryer sheets leave a white residue that comes off easily with water. (Don't let it dry without hosing it off first). And lastly the sooner you can get them off, regarless whether its paint, fiberglass or windows, the better you will be (a good coat of wax also helps).... Safe traveling...

You know it. If I was as lucky, I mean as busy as these little guys, I'd be sleeping in too.

This is what we're talking about:
