Little bugs can cause big car problems
Bugs may be some of the littlest of creatures, but, when it comes to the paint on your car, they can do some pretty big damage. How much damage bugs can do to your car depends on where you live and the time of year. If you live in a warm climate like San Diego, you’re going to be contending with bugs splattering on your car all year round, and it becomes a real battle to protect your paint job. But, typically, the amount of bug splatter on your car increases in the spring and summer months.
The paint on your car is more fragile than you would think and is sensitive to many outside elements. There are acids, particularly uric acid, found in the blood of insects. These acids can eat away at the paint on your car if they’re left on for too long without removing them.
It’s easy to ignore…..for awhile
Cleaning the bug splatters off your car’s paint as soon as possible can help to prevent any real damage because the acids in their blood go to work immediately and start dissolving the paint. But, realistically, that’s a lot easier said than done. The longer that bug splatter is allowed to remain on your paint, the more damage the acid does by actually etching into the paint and leaving stains, making it impossible to clean.
The amount of damage done by insect splatter can really be detrimental to the quality of the paint job on your vehicle and can have an effect on its resale value.
