Fly poop on white cars

Is there any way to avoid this? What are the best commercial , OR home made remedies, to EASILY remove all that fly crap on my white cars?

Make a little fly outhouse and tape it on the hood with duct tape. :slight_smile:

Keeping it well waxed will at least make cleaning easier.

What do you consider “fly poop”? Is it the orange spots that appear on white vehicles?

Now there is something I had not thought about for a while.

When I lived in Iowa, fly specs on my white car were a common problem. In Sacramento, I have not seen a fly spec for 30 years. The solution, then, is to move West. Failing that, keeping it waxed is your best defense.
