    Squashed onto your front bumper etc...Whats the best way? You can buy insect remover sprays from the likes of Tesco/halfords but will this damage the paint?

    The best way I found to remove them from my lid or the screen on my bike was to soak a towel in very soapy water and lay it on top of the bugs. As the water soaks into their tiny splattered little bodies lol they start to soften and they come off really easily after about 20-30 mins - using soapy water helps the towel not to dry out too quickly.

    When I first saw the topic title 'removing insects' I thought your username was 'st_flies'

    I'd recommend the stuff olivercox1983 mentioned too
