We always use Turtle wax, applied heavy coat and not polished or buffed.
At the end of the day, as soon as hooked up, before the first adult beverage, get a bucket of hot water, your favorite long handled brush and wet the front of the unit or wherever the bugs are smashed. Wet the surface and then scrub the wetted surface with plenty of warm water. Wash the bugs off with additional warm water, then rinse off with the hose!!! Bugs are gone!!!!!
If you wait and let them buggers dry on there, you going to bust your butt getting them off. They will fall off eventually but you going to work.
Hot water, let it soak the bugs and warm the wax. Off the bugs go.
We coat the windshield well with Rainex and use the warm water to wash the bugs off the glass!!!
Before you leave tomorrow, remember to put a good heavy coat of wax on again, same drill each day till you are away from Bug Country.
This has worked for us for several years!!!!

In East Texas we have a little critter called the "love bug". If you think wax will keep them off, you would be sadly mistaken. It will help, but if you don't get them off your car, you will find that they have damaged you paint. Pam is the only thing I have ever known that allowed easy removal. We drove thru a swarm in my freshly waxed Yukon, parked at the cruise terminal for 7 days and came back to pits where each one had hit the car.
I drove through a "love bug" storm around Cleveland, TX one time. I used all the wash water in the wiper system, had to stop and refill, used it all again. Didn't stop anymore and the front of the car was absolutely covered. I swear if someone developed a glue made from bug guts, it would be the best glue ever. Nothing would cause it to fail. LOL
