Angry Bugs On Bumper!!! Get Off

So I always come home pretty late at night and I live out in the country so I drive on a lot of country roads... Once you get up to about 60 or 70 these hugs bugs begin to just swarm straight to my car and leave humongous white/brown marks on my front bumper and some even on my hood. When i wash it there are still remnance of bug guts. My 7th gen is blue so maybe it just shows more on mine or somethin... Does anybody else get this problem? What will work best to get these damn things off???

Quickest way, Meguiar's Instant Detailer- gets the really bloody bugs out the best.

Get the Meguiars Clay bar at Pep Boys or Advanced Autoparts.
