I use Kenotek "Anti-Insect". Dissolves bugs in a couple minutes.

agreed. Also PB's Bug Squash and Stoner's Tarminator. If just a bug or 2 I place a microfiber wet with fairly warm water on it for a minute or 2 till the proteins soften and then a very gently swipe and they come right off.

Same. Previously used both the Poorboy's World and the Griot's bug removers. And +1 on the wet MF towel method!

I use a bug remover product then spray some IPA as well, let soak for 5 minutes then rewash area. Haven't had any issues yet.

That IPA can affect your LSP.If you choos to do that I would re-apply to that area.

Already knew that but thanks I usually end up doing it also to make the surface as slippery as possible to aid with cleaning up the bugs next time.

I use our Waterless Wash, spray let soak while wiping down the rest of the car. Go back and do the bugs last.
The key is not to leave them on get them off ASAP. For older bugs you may need to clay to get them removed.

Where do you get this product? Also I have heard WD-40 works. Need a good product for tar also or whatever that black stuff is that comes off the roadway and usually gets on side of car and up on wheel wells.

Rejex is awesome! Very durable and really hydrophobic. Rejex is the base sealant I use on my daily driver. I also use it on the windows of my C5Z.

I buy Kenotek products from both Autogeek and Detailed Image.

Xpel is on both of our vehicles so I don't worry about etching the paint. What I do is wash the area that has bug residue on it and go over the washed area with a wax/polish that is safe for Xpel. Seems the more I wash and polish the less residue I find.
Hopefully the damn lovebugs will be gone in a few weeks....until September.
