Bug Removal

Today as I was giving my Carbon Black paint the first of its twice weekly washes I noticed a lot more bug splatter than before. Anyone have some good suggestions for bug (and other unwanted contributions from mother nature) removal? I've been using a 3M compounding product that works pretty well and doesn't leave swirls/microscratches, but I hate to use if over too large of an area. Thanks!

I have Xpel on the entire front of the car. So I just use a wet towel to soften the bug splatters then wipe them off clean.

Years ago when I didn't have paint protection film on the front of the car, I used bug and tar remover then polished the area with wax after washing it off.

Yep, I'm getting it put on at the end of the month. If I get a paint chip from now until then, I'll kill myself.

I've got one or two small ones around the lower air intakes. Rocks are the work of Beelzebub.
