Love Bug Season

Love Bug Season

Well, it’s that time of year again.  You all in the south know exactly what we’re talking about.  You got black stuff all over the windshield.  You have to use your wipers every other minute to clear your view.  You also find black stains all over the front of your vehicle.  If you guessed love bug season, then you have experienced this nuisance a time or two.  Is there anything that can be done to help your vehicle through this mess?  Let’s take a look at a few steps you can take to make love bug season a little better for you and your vehicle.

First off, you are going to want to wash and wax your vehicle often during love bug season.  Use a high quality wax with a polymer. This will make it easier to remove the bugs.  Make sure your radiator is clear and that no bugs get through.  You may also want to apply a “bra” on the front of your car to protect the paint.  Love bugs have a very high acidic residue that can damage the paint.  Take every precaution you can.  There are also products out there that can help your windshield.  Gerber Collision and Glass recommend visiting your local automotive store and get the best windshield treatment solution available.  If you get stuck in a love bug swarm, these tips will help you get through another love bug season.
