Same with Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover. The stuff just melts. No elbow grease is needed at all. Just wipe away.

I read somewhere, (it may have been here) that if you do not remove the Pam right away, it bakes in. The guy had to have the Pam professionally removed because it impossible for him to get off. He learned the hard way.

The vegetable oil polymerizes and turns in to plastic. Think linseed oil (oil based paint).

Thought they were just about through for the season until driving east on 417 from the Turnpike. It was pop-pop-pop for miles.

We drove into a swarm somewhere north of Ocala on the way here. Washed the car and got the white splatters off the windshield once we got to the house. Since then, we've run into a few pairs here and there. We haven't encountered any swarms or infestations anywhere that we've driven between Orange Blossom, Silver Lake, Spanish Springs, Sumter Landing, or even a few spots south of that when we went on a "let's see where this golf cart path takes us" tour over the past several days.
