    Bug removal between washes

    Does anyone know of a good product to remove bugs from my front bumper between washes? In the past, I've used 409 but I've always worried it was too strong and might damage the wax or something. What does everyone else use that won't damage your wax or clearcoat but gets rid of the bugs easily? Thanks.

    My buddy uses Bug and Tar remover. I need to ask him how well it is working for him though. Also, if you are worried about the strength of 409, you can use a detailer spray instead, which is made for cars.

    I'm interested in how other people feel about products like bug and tar remover

    I just texted him, He said he used a spray which was decent, but he had this gooey stuff that worked better.

    I like using 1Z einszett Anti-Insekt Bug + Tar Remover and a more aggressive clay bar for the really stubborn areas. Anti-Insekt has been amazing on my customers' cars.

    Mequirs ultimate spray wax, spray it on let it sit 20-30 seconds wipes right off. I live in Florida and we have "love bugs" they eat into your paint, at certain times of the year this is a nightly ritual.

    I use Turtle Wax Bug and Tar. There hasn't been anything it wasn't able to take off so far.
