It's that time again! It happens every year and when it does, it looks like most of our vehicles have driven through some kind of "bug" apocalypse.

It's Lovebug season! And this year is shaping up to be a really bad one, and that's terrible news for the grill and bumper of your car or truck.

In an interview with the Louisiana Radio Network, LSU Ag Center entomologist Aaron Ashbrook says, “Because its been so moist they’re able to survive much better.” Ashbrook went on to say that we have a lot of large swarms this year because of moist leaves and other organic matter.

So, where does that leave us?  You guessed it, cleaning up all those bug guts from our vehicles before they eat through the chrome or paint and leave permanent scars.

What Are Some Of The Ways To Clean Them Up?

Just Googling the question, "What's the best way to clean bugs off my car?" gleaned a lot of different solutions.

  • Baby Oil
  • Baking Soda
  • Cooking Spray
  • Avon Skin-So-Soft
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
  • WD-40
  • Dryer Sheets

All of these can work, but these methods all leave you with a few questions.  How easy is it? How expensive is it? Will it hurt my car?

I Found A Product That's Easy To Use, Won't Hurt Your Car, And It's Cheap

Okay, before you even ask the question, let me answer it for you.  No, this is not some type of commercial.  I'm not being paid to let you in on this secret. This is something I've tried myself and it works like a charm.

It's Turtle Wax Power Foam Bug and Tar Remover.  You can find it anywhere and prices vary somewhat, but at napaonline.com, you'll find the 16 oz. bottle for just $7.29.

This stuff works miracles for bug removal.  Now, the product also comes in a spray, but don't get that one.  You want to make sure you stick with the foam version, so that it will stick to those bugs and loosen them after a few minutes.

Just take a look at this video and see for yourself.  Might want to grab a few cans now since it looks like the next few weeks are going to be ugly for the grill of your car.

PICS: See Inside the Historic Texas Ranch Where the New 'Yellowstone: 6666' Spinoff Is Filmed

The massive, historic Texas ranch where the new Yellowstone spinoff Yellowstone: 6666 is filming has sold for just under $200 million, and pictures show a property that is truly part of Texas history.

The 6666 Ranch — better-known as the Four Sixes Ranch — in Guthrie, Texas, dates back to 1870. The ranch centers around a 13-bedroom, 13-bathroom, 13,280-square-foot main residence, which is constructed of quarry rock that was hauled to Guthrie by wagon. The ranch also includes vast, sweeping fenced pastures, farmland, fenced-in pens for cattle, a more recent addition for horses, a water filtration plant that serves the ranch's water needs and more.

There are separate camp manager's homes in both the North Camp and the South Camp of the ranch, which encompasses nearly 225 square miles of land. Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan is part of a group of investors who recently acquired the property for $192 million, and he has been shooting his new show out there in recent months.
