Bugs off boat windshield?

Recommended Posts

I think they make special de-bugger, but is there anything around the house that i can use to get the bugs off the windshield without scratch up the windshield?

Can we name product names?

Try goo-gone or WD-40. Spray on and let sit a few, paper towel and elbow grease. Circular motion, wax on wax off as Myagii said grin

A little off topic but seems like a good place to offer this suggestion.

Plastic windshields will eventually get scratched up with those superfine scratches making them appear foggy and hard to see through. One way to restore their ultra-clear appearance and help make cleaning easier later on is found in a common everyday household dusting spray...Pledge.

Spray a rather liberal coat of Pledge furniture polish and wipe with a clean dry towel (cloth, not paper). When I used this on my motorcycle windshield I found that Lemon Pledge seemed to work better than others.

We use Brass O on our fire sheilds to get the smoke and carbon build up off. Might try that in a corner to make sure it does not dull the plastic but it works great on our light bar lens covers too. Jeff

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
