    Try using the dryer sheet “Bounce” to remove the pest. I wet down the area, then wet the dryer sheet and start wiping. It makes removal much easier, I’ve been using them for the past 2 yrs. and have not notice any damage to the finish yet. I have never tried it on the windsheild.

      Denny, you mean to “kill them”; or to remove the splatters?

        A Light coat on your grill and the front of you hood makes them much easer to remove.

        Won’t that hurt the paint, or the plastic chrome?–Lorenzo

        Sorry, Spray it on then wipe it off, leaving a light film. Wash your vehicle as soon as you can to remove the bugs. Not good on glass, and Lexan, leaves oily film. I use it to remove adhesive left after removing old vinyl letters from vehicles. I spay it on thick, and let it set for several hours. For the most part,It evaporates, but softens the glue enough to easily be remove. I’ve never had problems with it staining the paint or moldings. It makes rubber parts look new. It will also remove oxidized paint from old finishes, fix squeeky doors and windows, loosen rusty bolts, and it really slicks your hair down.

    I have also heard of WD 40 for bug splatter removals and many other uses. If one would do a search on google for “WD-40 uses”,there must be a 1,000 the Company lays claim to.

    pam also works really well. you spray it on the front of your car or scooter and wipe it off. when go to wash off the bugs they come right off.

    Having been in the automobile reconditioning business and owning a tunnel car wash in
    Nacogdoches, Texas, the best product that I have found is a spray on application type
    called “Bugzapper”. Repeat use saves on paint jobs. I can obtain a reference list to prove it.
    Unfortunately the minimum amount that can be purchased is by the gallon. Contact me for
    more information. Doug James
