If you ever driven up in the mountains where the bugs are bigger than rodents, and you spend alot of your time trying to scrape of the buggers off your bumper and especially your licence plate, a friend of mine mentioned to try spraying on "pam" cooking spray on the front of your bumper and plate. Well damn if it worked! The bugs hit but just slide right off......too bad it doesn't work on the radiator though

I'll tell you where bugs are the worst. In Louisiana, around Baton Rouge, from there to Slaughter. Geewhiz, we had to drive there for a wedding, and had to stop several times to clean the grill and radiator out cause the van started running hot. Not only do they have loads of gnat type bugs, but we went in August when it was lovebug season. You couldnt go outside without 2 bugs making out on your shirt LOL. I'll have to remember the Pam trick next time. Thanks!

Nebraska is bad too. Front and windshield gets splattered with grass hoppers, etc. I'll have to try your Pam suggestion. It doesn't damage the paint?

I worked with a guy that sprayed a "no stick" product like Pam on the front of his truck and after a couple of weeks the paint began to peel off.

There is a product out there that you can spray on and the bugs just wipe off, 'course I don't have the name of it right now...I need to get the name from a relative. sorry.

I hang a peice of fiberglass screen door screen in front of my rad. bugs don't stick to it at all. But it does restrict air flow slightly.
