Love Bugs

They will ruin your paint!!!!


  • It's that season again. Soon our windshields and grilles will be covered with the splattered remains of black-and-red insects. What's a car owner to do?
  1. "It's very important, when the season comes around, to apply a good coat of car wax to the front end of your vehicle, to the hood and the bumper," . "I would do it every other week, just to keep the protection as high as possible to prevent those bugs from destroying your paint."
  2. If your car becomes a bug killing machine, wash the carnage.
    If the bug acid already has done some damage, you will have to paint. Period Do not spend your money on so called paint repair kits.They will help but they will not give perfect results.As a matter of fact paint repair kits like touch up paints etc. will come no where close to looking good.Better to protect your paint than repair it.
  3. I don't use wax but I do use Simix Supreme Shield which over the last eight seasons has prevented damage on my customers cars.It is a product that is called  a potassium silicate.Never heard of the stuff until this mad scientist approached meThis product is far superior to wax and I have seen results over the last nine years.It contains nano Tio2 My customers are seeing zero damage.I do sell this product on my site and stand behind it one hundred percent.You can buy it here

These little pest, secrete an acidic substance that will etch the surface of the car. "So you have to put on a sacrificial barrier to help protect the paint underneath."

Other Love Bug Tips

• Wash the bugs off as soon as possible. They should be easier to remove. The longer the splatters stay on the car, the more likely paint damage occurs.

When you go to take the creatures off your paint,the quicker the better.The longer they remain on the paint the harder it is to remove them.I use a product called OXI One All purpose Cleaner that works really well.They do sell bug removal products at auto parts stores like Auto Zone,Advance Auto parts and probably even Wal-Mart. If you cannot find a specific bug remover use dish washing soap or whatever.Simple green will do the job as well.

To wash off the bugs

  • Use a lot of water
  • Do not apply to much pressure
  • Let the cleaner do the work
  • Gently move in back and forth motion until the bug body breaks loose.
  • Rinse well
