That's gruesome.

I like the Griot's Garage Spray Wax, it's stupid easy to put on and I also use it for touch ups on areas that get bug bombed.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

First off, love the Three Amigos references....I thought I was the only one that knows every line to that movie :smilie

Anyways, I feel your pain....I don't ever remember bugs being as bad as they have become in the last few years. I can't drive more than 10 minutes (day or night) without my windshield and front covered in mosquitoes.

When I was driving between Tampa and Orlando last week, it seemed like it was raining and I thought "These are really big rain drops... how odd". Then when I got home I realized they were love bugs. :p I have never seen a mass murder of love bugs like that, it was weird.

I wax the front end VERY frequently in lovebug season. That way the little fockers pretty much just spray right off. (Meguiar's Nxt Gen Tech Wax 2.0)
