Wow! And I thought the bugs were bad here in the mountains of Virginia! That's pretty crazy.

YUP thats all you need. will not scratch paint. just actually wash the bumper afterwards. because you have the dryer sheet residue on there

I hate when your driving from Atlanta GA to anywhere on the FL coast (Ocean side), and they only have one road to take for long streatches, and you can see cloud after cloud of them down the way and its like crap, this is going to suck, but what are you going to do? its not like you can wait them out.......

wonder if theres an oil or a spray you can put on the car prior to the trip that will keep them from sticking so hard to the car, so you can just spray them off when you get where your going.....
