The love bug situation in Central FL is starting to look more intense than years past. It pains me to leave all these little gooey spots on the car (some with little black massacred love bugs still clinging to them), but I know the love bugs will once again hurl themselves against my car in even greater numbers as soon as I get back on the road. I'll just have to keep faith in the healing powers of a good coat of wax underneath all of the carnage, but I'm not sure if I'll ever get them all out of the intercooler.
Do people in other parts of the country have to put up with this winged menace?
If there is any justice in the cosmos, whatever crackpot UF researchers are responsible for this yearly plague should be washing cars until the sun burns out. That is all.

It's the same down here, if not worse, on the Texas coast. I hate the little bastar*s. Bug & Tar remover is definitely your friendOriginally Posted by ODJ

Eiother that or invest in a foam gun that coats your car in foam when you wash it so it can pre-soak whatever gunk is on it. Works much better than prerinsing with water and it's a great way to not introduce marring or swirls on your finish (because that's the main step marring comes from).
I got hte gilmour one... they're all about the same. WELL worth a cheap $50. They COVER the whole damn car in seconds and help to presoak your paint/bugs/etc... and it eliminates the wash bucket that dirt goes into... you should still have a rinse bucket though/.
