Oh my!!! What do you usually use to get them off easier? Normal car soap sometimes work for me but when they are caked on I usually use a bug and tar remover

Just used car soap. The car has a good coat of wax so it was not hard to get them off.

When the bugs have been on awhile you can use a bounce dryer sheet to remove them effortlessly. A guy I know used to be in the car detailing business and he shared that tip with me. I didn't believe it until I tried it... works like a charm.
