Love bugs are back

I had to take a trip to Orlando today. I didn't have the camper. When I got back my grill and windshield were covered with love bugs. Next week I am taking the camper to Rainbow Springs State Park. Looks like I will have to put a good coat of wax on the cap. What do others do so these bugs slide off easier?

Ok, ugh. Our stink bugs are slightly different but do the same activity.

I believe the answer is the same as thousands have already gotten. Not much help.

Sorry.

Man, I don't miss living south of I10. I remember having to wash my car nearly everyday. Pain.
Clear bra.

Rejex works great. Bugs just wipe off with a damp rag. Available on Amazon.

If you catch them early enough, spray them with hydrogen peroxide. They will turn white and wash right off.

Two solutions: Wet dryer sheets for easy removal. Stay north of I-10 for week! If not possible see solution # 1

I used to live in Foley, AL and always wondered if these things go crazy when they get within 20 milesof I-10. My suggestion in removing them is SprayNwaxh laundry stain remover. Spray on paint, chrome, anywhere and willnot hurt finishes. Soak 5-10 min then remove by wiping with dryer sheets and rinse. Works quite well!
