    Raditator and "Love bugs"

    Got a big problem with love bugs down here , and im not talking volkswagens .

    these critters are like fireflys but they dont light up and the fly around in pairs joined at the arse in huge swarms .

    For some reason cadillac never thought of this (i dont blame them)

    So tonight i looked at the radiator to check to see how it was doing , it was pretty much coated on the grille side in cooked bugness

    got the pressure washer and blew them out from the engine side of the radiator , problem solved

    but now i want to keep this from happening , i think it would be easier to clean a mesh window type screen mounted behind the grille , but it will cut the flow to the rad and clog the screen up pretty fast ... so anyone got ideas?

    for now im drafting semitrucks to keep the nose clean (these things eat paint too)

    I wouldn't think it would harm anything much at all. When looking at the autotrader or ebay I have seen many caddy's with a screen door type material covering the grill, and even I was thinking of going to Homedepot and cutting one to go there when traveling the highway for a long distance.
