Sawdust all over car

Long story short, my car is covered in sawdust. What's the best way to get it off?

I don't think you can. It'll probably be there forever now.

Right now I wake up every day with "saw dust" on my car. Actually nectar and wood falling from the damn Carpenter Bees, it's mortal combat between us. There can be only one.

I would use some gasoline, and spray all over then burn it off.

Good for a laugh, couldn't care less. Rather be safe than have scratches all over the car, it wasn't like there was a few specs it was about an inch thick across the hood.

But seriously, I'd recommend you spread a thin layer of mealworms over the car and let them eat it off.

Well the blood from my fathers hand stained sawdust so Went with the mealworms. The mealworms started to work but were taking too long, so I decided to try the gasoline and match trick that was recommended. Seems to have chard the mealworms, the sandpaper is the only viable option at this point.
