A Tough Day In The Neighborhood
I'm just a car trying to get from Point A to Point B minding my own business. The next thing you know a swarm of bugs come out of nowhere and start running into me. Now I'm covered in bugs. Aren't bugs supposed to be attracted to light, so why are they attacking me during the day.?
I try to shake them off, but they just keep coming. I honk my horn and swerve from side to side, but nothing seems to deter them. Finally, I pull into a parking lot and come to a stop.
I really hate bugs. They're always getting in my way and ruining my day. I wish they would just leave me alone. But no, they just keep coming and coming. I can't even go for a drive without them attacking me.
It's not fair. There's a big mess to clean up. I don't know why they did it, but it was really annoying.
Good thing my owner knows how to get rid of them.
How To Remove Bugs From Your Car
Keeping a car washed and clean can help some to prevent bugs from sticking to the paint and making a mess. Waxing the car will also make it harder for bugs to stick.
If your car is already covered in bugs, here are a few ways you can remove them:
Try to remove them as soon as possible. If they are left to dry, they will be harder to remove.
Use a garden hose or a high pressure sprayer to rinse off as many of the bugs as possible.
Apply a commercial bug remover that you can find at most auto stores. Typically you apply the solution to the bugs with a sponge and scrub until they come off.
It's always best to take preventive measures to avoid bugs in the first place. Here are a few things you can do:
Regularly clean your windshield and front of the car so that bugs are less likely to stick.
Keep your car waxed so that bugs have a harder time sticking to the paint.
Install a bug deflector on the front of your car.
