I have found a wet dryer sheet (like Bounce) helps remove them from my white car.

Drove to Port Canaveral four days ago and the car was covered with those pesky Love Bugs and their awful remnants. Got back home today and will work on the mess tomorrow. I tested a spot on the windshield today by generously spraying Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover. I let is sit for 30 minutes. Everything wiped off with a paper towel with ease. That is how we plan to clean the car early tomorrow morning when it is cooler. Then, off to the car wash to make it sparkle.

I had to take my Bride to the airport. Prior to leaving, I sprayed Pledge on the front of the car. Got home and just hosed off the critters. Worked fairly well.




I think I heard about using Pledge on ToTV during the last Love Season.

I had to drive down to Winter Park and back yesterday afternoon and went straight to the car wash in Wildwood to clean that layer of goop off when I got back.

One of the news channels in Orlando had a small piece last week saying that the lovebug population was down; I don't know where, it's the worst I've seen in 3 years in Louisiana and 4 years here.
