Watch your Camaro. The little fornicating bleeps are back in FL.

They really need to get a room.

Along with the damp dryer sheets this work like a charm. No Snake Oil.It's a 3:1 Concentrate and the MF Bug towel works great. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to remove dryersheet and remover residue. Hit with your favorite detailer and you are bug free for the time being.

We were down in Florida in May and did not get to where they were real bad, but we saw cars coming from the south that were covered in them. When I say covered there was no paint showing on the front bumpers!! One guy said he sprayed Pam cooking oil on before going out all over his front bumper

I was heading to work the other day and saw this....They were nice enough to pose for the camera! Camaros are obviously a nice spot for insects to get it on

Already!?!?!?!

Haven't hit S/E FL yet... but man, this Spring was the worst id ever seen!

Make sure you get em off asap! I got sick of cleaning the wife's car for her every day, so I left her to do it (her job pays for their cars to get detailed monthly).... she went the whole month and they ate throughout her clear coat.... thought it was just rumors about that, but they killed a 09' Rogue... ugh!

Damn perverted bugs!

Put Blue painters tape on your entire front bumper/hood/mirrors if your going on a long trip and don't want to destroy your paint with them. May look stupid but shoot at least you won't waste 5 hours getting off.

The Poor Boy's World Bug Squash and Dryer Sheets are effective tips also.
