    Hey Steve, I'm near I-75 and the turnpike. They are out right now and will diminish as you get further south. You can clean them daily with Bug Squash or you can make a Blue Painter's Tape Bra for the trip

    Re: Love Bugs..........

    I just drove from NJ to Orlando and my windshield and bumper took a beating. I had a few coats of wax on there to start so I was able to use a quick spray speed wax when I stopped at hotels but I would use something like WaxMaster1 suggested as it has better cleaning properties or a general quick detailer and a MF. Unfortunately, you'll hit them and they make a mess like you already know. I personally found they got worse the further south I drove.

    I'm in SW Florida and I've yet to see any this year. Hope I just didn't jinx myself...

    Kenotek Anti Insect for the removal.....I'm in NJ...so no love bugs....but lots of other types to deal with. Our vehicles get Meguiars Ultimate Wax (actually a sealant) on the fronts.....makes them easier to get off

    Nothing in Broward County ... and was all up/down the Southwest coast to St. Pete's last weekend also. That said, I don't travel without a small bottle of Poorboys Buqsquash.

    If you can spare the time I would get some collinite.apply the whole front and mirrors.once applied you won't need any special bug removal chemical.No bugs near Palm beach.

    Fresh coat of wax prior to your trip. Then bring some RW and some MF'S with you.

    FYI... Don't take Nova Road (the scenic route) between Buena Vista and Cape Canaveral... I don't think quick detailer is gonna help me to much, lol.
