Seasonal bug swarms impact every region of the United States at least once a year. If you live in a warmer state, you may have multiple seasons with bugs active in the late spring and early fall. Bug splatters can be very difficult to clean from your car and, if not treated properly, can leave permanent stains with damage to the finish. Because many insects are very acidic, it is best to remove bug residue before it dries on your vehicle's paint. This will lessen the chances of damage to the clear coat and base paint. If you are able to address bug residue immediately, use a microfiber towel and detailing spray to clean it off. If not, visit our page on How to Remove Bugs from Car Paint for helpful tips.
Generally speaking, most bug splatters contain an acidic residue along with gritty substances such as seeds or other delicacies the bug may have ingested. If left on your car's finish, almost any bug splatter can cause permanent damage to the paint. Listed below are three of the more common culprits:
Location: Large populations of love bug pairs are commonly found throughout Florida, but love bugs can also be found in the rest of the Gulf Coast states.
Active Season: Love bugs are most active for 3-5 weeks in late spring (April or May) and early fall (August or September). Love bugs primarily appear during cooler hours of the day (mid-morning and just before nightfall).
Location: There are 570 species of mayflies throughout North America. Mature mayflies are found in areas surrounding freshwater lakes and rivers.
Active Season: Mayflies are only active for a few weeks during the spring months, however they often emerge in very large swarms.
Location: Stink Bugs can be found in Mid-Atlantic, Midwestern, and Southern states. Both Brown and Green Stink Bugs are especially problematic in southern states. It is predicted that Stink Bugs will soon be spread throughout the U.S.
Active Season: Brown Stink Bugs move outdoors when the weather is warm (usually from April or May) and remain a problem until temperatures drop. Green Stink Bugs are most active from mid to late June but can be problematic through early fall.
Remember, you wouldn't want to pour acid (or grit) on your vehicle's paint and rub it into the surface layers. So, don't try to scrub the insect residue off without presoaking the affected areas. Then take a microfiber towel, a dryer softener sheet or ladies' pantyhose, and use a circular motion with a gentle stroke to remove the excess bug residue.
