Talstar P (previously Talstar One) is a powerful
and economical liquid insecticide concentrate that controls over 75 different types of common
household, lawn and ornamental pests – Perfect for most of your pest control needs both indoors

crack and crevice spray in areas where pests may hide. Pay special attention to baseboards,
corners, storage areas, window and door frames, behind and under appliances, cabinets, sinks,
and anywhere else you notice target pest activity. Talstar P should not be used as a broadcast
spray indoors. Talstar P is a long lasting product and may
only need to be applied once every few months for general pest control. Talstar should not
be applied more than once every seven days. Be sure to wait thirty minutes before allowing
pets and children into any treated areas so that your application has time to dry. Make
sure to read all labels and safety precautions to ensure a safe and effective application,
and you will have great success using Talstar P for your pest control needs.

How to Use BORA-CARE Borate Wood Treatment

How to Use BORA-CARE Borate Wood Treatment


Boracare is a unique borate-based product
that provides prevention and control for Termites, Carpenter Ants, Powderpost Beetles and Decay
Fungi. Boracare can be used on most unfinished or raw wood including plywood, particle board,
and wood structural components. Boracare can also be used to prevent subterranean termites
from forming tubes on surfaces such as concrete, block, brick, metals, and PVC plumbing pipes
found in structures. Boracare can be used at a 1 to 1 or 1 to 5
Boracare-to-water ratio depending on the job at hand. Please refer to the product label
for the correct usage rate for your specific needs. Boracare should be mixed with hot water
in a bucket until it is thoroughly dispersed in the water. Boracare should never be mixed
directly in sprayers as the product is very thick and will clog the sprayer if it is not
premixed with hot water. Boracare can be applied as a spray using a
hand pump sprayer, as a foam using a foamer and a foaming additive, or it can be painted
on with a roller when needed. Indoors, Boracare can be applied on infested
wood, wooden elements of furniture, wood floors, and stud walls. Apply Boracare until surfaces
are saturated, but not to the point of runoff. Use Boracare in a well-ventilated area, or
use a respirator during application in confined locations such as crawl spaces or attics. Outdoors, all raw wooden elements such as
fenceposts, decks and new wooden siding can be treated. Do not apply within 48 hours of
rain or snow. For elements that will be exposed to rain and sunlight, wait at least 48 hours
for Boracare to dry before painting, staining or sealing with a water-resistant product.
All exposed wood needs to be sealed within six weeks for Boracare to remain effective. And it’s that easy, with the expert help from

Top 10 Biggest Mistakes in Ant Keeping

Top 10 Biggest Mistakes in Ant Keeping


What’s up guys welcome to the ads, Canada and Channel, I’m your ant guy Mikey Bustos Thanks for watching this video really means a lot to me. I’ve been wanting to release this video for a while Sorry, there’s my Pig don’t mind her walking around in the background here Over the years that as Canada has been open and I believe going on to six years now Wow I’ve been answering all of your amazing questions on ants when you guys write to us at contact – us at ncaa.com But I do find that there are some common I don’t say mistakes But yeah perhaps errors that might be setting back a lot of them keepers from really Enjoying the experience of a fruitful and colony and so this video is about the top 10 biggest mistakes in ant keeping All right so the tenth biggest mistake in and keeping I find is Now I know this is gonna cause a lot of controversy So I just want to get it out of the way it really has been the center for a lot of heated debate But in my opinion the tenth biggest mistake is Keeping and buying exotic ant species in other words expiry of ants that are not from your area they’re imported often illegally I Myself and a lot of scientists out there are really against the practice of keeping Exotic ends in the home as pets and why do I feel like this is a big mistake? Well other than being very dangerous for the environment and also fueling an illegal pet trade It’s a mistake because the ants often don’t make it. You know a lot of people dream of having that amazing fungus Growing you know a de or a chrome or mechs colony at home, and they live in like a temperate region And they completely just ordered these exotic species from the web or wherever Illegally to and the colony doesn’t flourish moving here to the tropics from Canada I can now appreciate why it doesn’t work often because just the conditions are really hard to duplicate I’m especially for the really sensitive Tropical species like my Asian Weaver ants here for example they really flourish here in Philippines in the wild and It’s kind of easy to keep them here indoors in my place Because the temperatures right the humidity’s right all of that all those aspects are right But even then it’s hard to duplicate the conditions outside now I imagine bringing Asian Weaver ants to say I don’t know Canada It would be no surprise to me that they wouldn’t survive them, so if you guys can learn to appreciate the native species It will really make your and keeping experience so much easier oh and also if you’re looking for ends be sure to check our game project on our website more about that later at the end of This video as well. We hook up and keepers who want to sell their colonies to local and keepers who are looking for colonies And that number nine one of the biggest mistakes in and keeping I find is The out world set up now what’s another world the old world is that enclosure that you attach to your for? Material which acts as the outer world where your ends kind of go out in the forage And they bring food back into their nest but also the garbage out there and it starts quite a few functional actually the biggest mistake I find that a lot of and keepers are doing is they’re Designing a very very complicated and intricate out world now. This is okay If you have a natural nest because you can get as intricate as you want if you have a natural mess That’s fine, but if it’s just a nut world with out the form aquarium attached into the out world you can run into some problems if you have too many plants and Decorations and all of that sort of thing because the ants have more opportunity to hide in effect What happens is a lot of the ants move out of the for material and? Into the out world whether it be under rocks in pieces of wood and little looks and crannies that you can’t really see or get to and also an Overcomplicated up world can lead to problems with cleaning as you all may know the ants use the out world as a place to dispose of their garbage and Create a graveyard so you want all places of the out world to be accessible, so you can clean up all of that junk And at number eight in our biggest mistakes in and keeping we have the problem of a bad setup a Lot of you guys write to me saying are you having problems with your ants and I find that most of it is Attributed to the setup now I wanted to briefly go over the Aspects of a very good for material the ideal for material allows you to have a temperature and moisture gradient So you have warm spots and cool spots, you’ve got moist spots and you have less moist spots this allows your ant colony to kind of choose and thermo regulate and Hydro, regulate depending on what they prefer an effective nest also has a good hydration system you don’t want a nest that dries out too quickly because it’s quite the hassle to have to always add water and Let’s say you forget to add water one day your ants will dry out But at the same time you don’t want a for material that you just water say Once a week or once someone because if that’s the case it means that water is just pulling there And it’s just a breeding ground for bacteria And harmful microbes that can harm your colony for me a formic areum that you water about two to four times a week Is pretty good oh yeah, and I should mention that? Your hydration routine depends on the species because if you have a dry loving species like say messer or Pocono, Miramax You don’t want to be watering too often But if you have a say America rubra company that requires water constantly Well you have the water more often Finally you want a form aquarium with good ventilation if there’s a lot of stagnant air in a for material You’re gonna get mold So one way to get rid of that is a nest with good ventilation Bad ventilation can happen when you don’t have enough exits for the size of form aquarium that you’re using So as a general rule the bigger the form aquarium the more exits You should have unless of course you have a form aquarium that kind of has ventilation spaces like our Omni nests are made of layers and believe it or not air does go through there and the little micro spaces at the top Number seven is a big one. It’s not hibernating your colony if you live in a temperate region now again There are a lot of people who say that it’s not necessary to hibernate your ants, but it has been said that Hibernating your colony helps prolong the life of the Queen because it gives her a break from egg-laying every year But it’s also kind of been my philosophy, and I’m keeping to as much as possible Give temperate and the opportunity to hibernate now. I’ve said this in previous videos of mine And I’ve gone over the reasons why it’s important to hibernate, but the general reason for me is that? Well, you know all animals run on Cycles for example we humans we wake up in the morning. We eat at specific times You know we go to the bathroom often at specific times And then we get sleepy in the night this of course is the circadian cycle, which is monitored by our pineal gland in our brain Based on light and there are always all of these sort of cycles and animals that control nearly everything like hormones and Just really everything for me if you don’t hibernate you’re ants I feel like kind of like interrupts that cycle You know as for millions of years in Wherever say canada or USA or europe they’ve evolved to hibernate year after year And if you remove that from their environment and living condition it kind of can screw up in my opinion their cycle and most of the time ants Will go into a hibernation state anyways even if you try to keep them warm and indoors so might as well give them What they want right I always say to learn to appreciate The amazing break that you guys are given from the ant keeping because especially if you’re keeping a lot of ants I remember back in Canada I used to love when hibernation came because it meant that I could just kind of sit back and take a break and store my ant colonies away for a good three months and Not have to worry, and it kept and keeping very very fresh Number six is also a big one that I often see in emails and that is moving an ant colony into your form aquarium Too early now if you’re gonna move a queen into a for material It’s always best That she has a big full army of workers to help her in this critical time when she’s moving from her Founding chamber to a larger nest for me I like to wait till there are at least about 20 workers the more workers You can kind of culture the better when you’re moving the colony from test-tube Set up to there for material I find some people try moving their ants too early and the small colony fails to adapt to the large space and It often leads to the Queen dying and all the workers die what you can do to make things easier is you can take your test tube set up place it into a world or like a small container or an aquarium and directly inside remove the coffee And then feed the colony inside this container put your barrier at the top or what have you and yeah? Just place the food inside there, and they can survive in there until the colony gets larger And then when you have enough workers you can then proceed to move them into your forma carry on by attaching that Container or a world to your form aquarium, and then eventually Moving on with our countdown for top 10 biggest mistakes and keeping is another big one that I find a lot of people might have trouble with and that is finding the best ratio for diet now if you’ve watched our previous videos you know that hence require Sugars they require protein and they require your water your ants depend on you to provide them those three so when a lot of people Write to me saying they’re having a problem with their colony their colonies having issues with Growing or they’re having some die offs as well And if they’re setup seems right the next question I ask is what’s their diet like are you providing them water? Are you providing them sugars? are you providing them enough sex for booty if you guys haven’t seen it yet be sure to check out our and Nutrition tutorial here on this channel and it can help you out with ideas on how to feed your ants properly The number four mistake is keeping ants in an air-conditioned room now This is a big one for those of you who have seen our ant video on Thermoregulation and ants being cold-blooded you know that they can’t produce their own heat And so if they’re kept in a cool air-conditioned room the colony is gonna grow a lot slower then say if they were kept warm so if you’re gonna keep them indoors what I like to do is I like to have an ant room And if you have herps you know herb tiles or snakes lizards any other cold-blooded animals you can keep them in that room because that room tends to be warm and The humidity tends to be higher if you can keep all the ants in a single room and heat that room that would be amazing the way I used to achieve this when I lived in Toronto was I would kind of put tape on the central air-conditioning ducts and let the Sun stream in during the day so My room was boiling But the ants loved it now if there’s no way to do that and your ants Absolutely have to be in an air-conditioned room of course it helps to have a heating cable They sell them at pet stores for heating reptiles And run it alone one end of the for material And you can even put a spotlight in your out world as well to kind of simulate The sun’s heat and the ants will really really appreciate that Now number three is kind of a funny one because you know it’s really really easy to get excited especially if it’s your first time keeping ants and When you catch your Queen there’s nothing like the thrill of you know setting up her test tube setup and just kind of putting her away and Watching her create her colony really is fun and amazing and I totally get that but the problem with that is Sometimes it disturbs the queen now a queen that’s disturbed or overly stressed During this critical time when she’s founding her colony will often not do well Sometimes she’ll eat her eggs Sometimes she won’t lay eggs It just causes a lot of undue complications So as much as possible if you can Put your queen away in the dark under some towels in the depths of your closet somewhere and just forget about her Maybe I don’t know check her once a week once every two weeks if you can Your test tube setup If it’s done properly should be enough to be a good home for her During this period when she’s raising her Nana ticks her first generation of workers Number two is kind of related to number three because It involves the excitement of catching Queens now I remember when I first started and keeping and I discovered how thrilling it was and how easy it was to catch a queen I would catch like I Don’t know what like 34 Queens in a single week, and it was just a little too much I’ve discovered because by the end of it you have about 85 to 90% of them being fertilized and You don’t know what to do with all of these companies now This is excluding all of you people who are part of our game project you gain farmers out there Who are selling and colonies to people in your city this this is not UK? But for the beginners who just want to keep ends as pets I do recommend that you catch a few Queens just in case One of the Queen’s you’ve caught is Unfertilized but not to catch too much. I say in a summer if you can try to catch. I don’t know two or three of each species And Finally our number one in the countdown for top biggest mistakes and keeping it is not doing your research This is really a big key here because you know like with keeping any pet It really really is important to do your research beforehand now This doesn’t include you guys who all of a sudden discover a queen and it’s like a product. I wonder how to keep it Let’s go online and search that doesn’t include you guys But if you are wanting to get into and keeping of course researching is the best vvv. Best first step And for those looking for information. There is a plethora of information online Of course you can start with our website and scandal com be sure to click on our getting started Tab on our website and then ant care tab as well and of course this YouTube channel guys, I’ve got a Long list of videos in our video tutorial playlist and they can help you out And there are a lot of great forums on the internet that can help you as well finally if you guys want an all-inclusive source for information We do sell a book. It’s called the ultimate and keeping handbook It’s very affordable And it’s a digital ebook so you? Purchase the book and a link is sent to you and a link pops up where you can download the PDF file and it’s got Literally everything you need to know it’s got all the basics in there there’s even an ant glossary a very lengthy and dictionary for those of you who want to look up certain terms and I’ve also included a long list of the most commonly kept species And it’s got you know their temperature preference their hydration preference for vesper material details about their nuptials light when you can expect to find queens Their distribution or habitat all of that sort of some good stuff is in there in the end care section By species at the end of the book all right, so this video has been pretty long now Thank you so much for subscribing guys and for watching my videos and for supporting me and Canada and Store This is Mikey Bustos signing out. Thank you. Bye Hello guys my name is Hafez IKEA, I’m from Brasilia Brazil I’m a biologist and game farmer for the game project pants, Canada This here is one of my personal column is a fatal colony It is for most old with over 100 workers with some newborns here on the left as you guys can see that just hatched yesterday And as a biologist and keeper. I believe that the game project is a really good way to connect people in your area that Know about ants that keep ants you know actually learn more to Share your experience with people and also a really good way to start new and keepers to the Hobby because you have a lot of gang farmers out there with very good prices and Almost any kind of species so you can easily find again farmer in your new your area and Get in touch with him start with your own colony Well, I’ve been studying it for almost eight years already here guys can see my queen. I don’t know if I Can get a good catch, but there it is I? think ups for almost a year, and I believe that the game projects are really a collage the right way to to promote this hobby, you know they have a lot of caring about not letting the ends escape and You know getting dance for people who actually care about that not extra to avoid any pro with law or Biological problems is that a really good way and very wise way to keep ants well, I do have a lot of species and when I started I didn’t have a favorite species so I raised almost everything that I find here in Brazil I Have many poner in the ants like I don’t for Marcus, but now I have nel Panera versa I have eight automa And I Really like the project. I really like the the initiative that my key boosters have I’ve been keeping ants because of his videos on YouTube and not like to to let the message that I Hear guys can see they’re eating one of my water boy that I just fetch done Rather guys can see you guys can also see some Soldiers wandering around here the entrance Well what I’d like to say is that again purge is a really good way to Get in touch with and keepers and get more knowledge about the ends And I really think it’s a good way to promote the Haab especially in Brazil. We have few people who actually raise insects as pets like spiders some have like scorpions, but few people resent here in Brazil I Hope the project keeps growing, and if you any of you guys from Brazil has any We should raise a call me get in contact with my key bozos he can send all deformation To talk to me and get your own and colony. I also have fade also knobs for sale and I if you guys have any doubt about Raise your hands or how to get your Queens Go true and Canada calm, and you can learn Much more about that, and I guess this is it. Thank you guys Good luck you

How to Find Ants in Your House

How to Find Ants in Your House


The first step in effective ant control is
to locate the nesting area or entrance point of ants into your structure. A good place to start your inspection is in
the kitchen and bathroom. Most ant species prefer moist areas to nest and hide eggs,
so kitchens and bathrooms are typically the first areas to be infested. Use your flashlight to look for ants behind
or under refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, dishwashers, sinks, and cabinets. Ants may also be found in or around floor
drains, inside the motor areas of refrigerators and microwaves, behind wall paper, and in
cracks and crevices in cabinets and around walls. If you are only finding a couple of ants here
and there, try the following honey and peanut butter test to help attract the ants to one
spot: 1st- Place a jar lid or saucer near the area
where you have noticed some ant activity. 2nd – Place a half teaspoon of honey on one
end of the lid and a half teaspoon of peanut butter on the other end. 3rd – Leave the honey and peanut butter in
place until the ants form a trail. This test not only allows you to determine
where the ants are coming from, but which type of ant bait would work best in your ant
treatment program. For example, if the ants went primarily after the peanut butter, a
protein based bait will work best. If they went after the honey, you will be better off
using a sweet feeding bait. And it’s that easy with the expert help

How to Check for & Find Bed Bugs

How to Check for & Find Bed Bugs


Finding out your home or business infested
with bed bugs can definitely be scary. Even worse is not knowing where they’re hiding.
Never fear, in just four steps we’ll show you how to locate them just like the pros. Step one. Before beginning, make sure to have
a bright flash light and flat edged object like a credit card. With these objects you
can search in cracks, crevices, and folds in the furniture fabric more thoroughly than
you can with just your fingers. Step two. The number one area to search for
bed bugs is on and around your bed and bed frame. Start by checking the sheets and blankets
for small blood spots and skin molting’s that are often left by feeding bed bugs. Be sure
to check carefully along the tufts, folds, and seams of the mattress as those are the
primary areas where bed bugs harbor. If you are staying in a hotel that has a head board,
lift it up and inspect the area between the wall and the head board. Step three. Be sure to check areas where people
spend time resting or sitting idle, such as recliners, couches and computer chairs. Check
deep in cracks and crevices in the chair and under cushions. Step four. In order to have a complete inspection
you’ll need to check around the edges or perimeters of the room. Look at the edges of base boards
and carpet for any evidence of bed bugs. Make sure to also check curtains, underneath lamps,
wall mounted lamps, behind wall sockets, end tables, and picture frames. It’s that easy with the expert help from Do

How to Spray for Ants Outside

How to Spray for Ants Outside


If you have ants in your home or business,
chances are good they are coming from an outdoor nest where they travel back and forth for
food and water. Since they are coming from outside it makes sense to control them at
the source. There are many ant killer sprays on the market.
We strongly recommend a non-repellant residual spray like Termidor SC. Ants are likely to
detect and avoid other sprays that are not labeled as “non-repellent”. Termidor and
other products like it cannot be smelled, tasted, or felt by ants. Instead they crawl
unsuspectingly through treated areas, picking up poison on their bodies and carrying it
back to the nest. At the nest, ants not directly exposed to
the treated area will be controlled as they come into contact with affected ants. This
“Transfer Effect” means you’ll see its effects on ants in one to three days and most
species will be controlled within the first week following the treatment.
Now its time to apply the ant spray. You will need a 1 gallon hand pump sprayer. For Termidor, mix .08 oz of product with each
gallon of water. For any other product, refer to the label for mixing instructions. Most
jobs take 1 to 2 gallons of solution to complete a perimeter application. As you walk around your home, spray a barrier
that extends one foot up the foundation walls and one foot out on the ground. Sprays can also be applied to window and door
frames, utility cable openings, around pipe bibs, and any other place where you have noticed
ants trailing. Never apply ant sprays as a wide broadcast across your lawn, and limit
applications to once every six months. And it’s that easy with the expert help

How to Spray for Ants Indoors

How to Spray for Ants Indoors


There are times during the ant life cycle
when baiting is not the most effective method of control. For example, when ants are in
a nesting cycle, or if they already have a steady and safe supply of food, they will
not be very attracted to ant baits. That is why we recommend using a non-repellent ant
spray to supplement your ant baiting program. A non-repellent spray is an insecticide that
the target pest is not able to detect. Instead, the ants will wander over treated surfaces,
picking the poison up on their bodies and then carrying it back to nesting areas to
spread to the colony. Non-repellent ant sprays are super easy to
use. Simply insert the straw applicator included with the spray can, and apply a steady stream
directly into cracks and crevices in areas where you have noticed ant activity. These areas may include: Along baseboards Under and alongside appliances Around window frames Door Frames And where utility cables, pipes, and wires
enter the structure. You should begin seeing fewer live ants 2
to 3 days after your first thorough application. And it’s that easy with the expert help

How To Clean And Remove Dry Dead Bugs From Any Car – Chemical Guys Bug & Tar Wash

How To Clean And Remove Dry Dead Bugs From Any Car – Chemical Guys Bug & Tar Wash


Today is a very special day in the Detail Garage because we have this whole crew rolling in from Northern California! This MOPAR car club is coming in from areas
like Sacramento and The Bay Area. When you’re driving 500 – 600 miles on the highway, you’re gonna get bugs all over the front of your car! When you have a big, bright muscle car like
this Dodge Challenger, you can’t be distracted by these ugly bugs
all over the front of the vehicle! You need to take them off. Plus, if you don’t remove them quickly, the
bugs will stain and etch into the paintwork causing permanent damage. You need to take them off before they can
wreck your paint. I have a few of my favorite products here
to deal with bugs. I’m mainly worried about Bug & Tar Remover. This is a specialty soap that you add into
your normal car wash bucket or detailing spray bottle so you can take down the bugs and break them
off the surface so you don’t have to resort to hard rubbing
and scrubbing to get them off. To get set up, I have my two bucket method
already ready to go. I’ll set up my car wash soap. I’m using Hybrid V7 Car Wash Soap, I’ll put
a couple ounces in, then I’ll add just one ounce of Bug & Tar
Wash into my car wash soap bucket. It looks like I want to pre-saturate some
of these bugs with a solution of Bug & Tar Remover. I have a detailing bottle here. I’m going to make a 5 or 6:1 dilution of Bug & Tar Wash. If you just want to spot treat a few areas
without spraying down the whole car, you can use the Professional Detailing Bottle
with the pre-marked dilution slots on the side. I’ll pour in just enough to make a 5 or 6:1
dilution ratio. That is 5 parts water to every 1 part chemical. Once I have the product in, I’ll add some
normal filtered water. I’ll fill it to the top of the label… These bottles are great because they hold
more product. These are also great to use whenever you want
to dilute your detailing products like cleaners, degreasers, and detail sprays. And they come with these upgraded sprayers
that pump out more product with every spray. I’ll just prime the sprayer… there we go! Before I even rinse down the car or come at
it with a mitt, I’m going to pre-soak these bugs as I prepare
the rest of my wash method. I’ll come down here and just spray down all
these bugs. I’ll let the solution dwell for a couple minutes. It’s safe to use Bug & Tar Wash on any paintwork,
plastic pieces, glass, or optical plastics you might have on your car. It’s also safe to use on any clear bras or
clear wraps. Some of the cars here from the club have clear
bras, so it’s easy to treat a lot of these bugs on any of these cars. It looks like we have the whole front end
covered here. As that’s dwelling, I’ll set up the rest of
my wash buckets. I already have my soap solution mixed here
in my wash bucket. I’ll just activate the suds with my hose. To scrub down these bugs and guts, I’m going to use the Premium Microfiber Wash
Sponge. Unlike normal wash sponges, this one is made
with soft microfiber with a chenille side and a microfiber woven bug sponge side. This is great to gently scrub the bugs so
I don’t have to scrub hard and install a lot of scratches and I rub the paint. This has an elastic cuff, which makes it easy
to use and almost impossible to drop! I won’t drop it on the ground, pick up rocks,
then scratch the paint. If I want to use the bug scrubber side, just
flip the elastic over, and now I have a bug scrubber sponge that
I’m not going to drop. I’m letting that dwell on there for a while, I’ll pick up some suds, and gently wipe off
as many of these bugs that I can. Just with the first couple wipes I’m already
knocking off the bulk of the bug bodies, they’re just coming right off the paintwork. This is the easy part; the hard part will
be scrubbing out all the parts that are stuck in there. I’ll give this whole bumper a quick wipe. With the Two Bucket Method, you have one bucket
with your soap solution, and the second bucket with clear plain water. I’ll scrub out any bugs and guts directly
on the wash screen. I have a Dirt Trap in the bottom of this bucket,
which is going to help separate out any filth and dead bugs from the wash water
to keep my mitt nice and clean. You see I’ve knocked out all the dead bugs
and filth, I’ll wring it out on the ground, then come back into the bucket for more soap. Now that I have my mitt prepared again, I can get a little more aggressive on these bugs and gently scrub. You can see they’re all starting to just melt
right out of the paintwork. They’re all coming right out, and I’m not
leaving anything behind. It’s important to get out all these pieces,
because if you don’t get out the parts that get really stuck in there, that’s what will eat into your paintwork and
leave you with weird spots and gouges. Wow they’re even stuck in the fog light! These
are really in there… Obviously, when your car has 300, 400, or
500 horsepower and you’re going down the highway at
“highway speeds,” bugs don’t stand any bit of a chance! I’ll get more soap then come up here on the
front valance and get this soapy water solution all over the place. You can see this mitt holds a lot of soap
and a lot of water. This is the perfect tool to use for any weekly
wash or gut removal. I’ve knocked out the bulk of the bodies, so
I’ll come back with the gentle scrubber to take out the remainder. There we go. I can do this half of the bumper, and all
these little black spots are just going away. Bug & Tar wash also works great on road tar. So if you ever drive through a freshly-paved
road or construction site where they have tar and fresh asphalt being laid down, the tendency is for that stuff to fling all
over the side of your car when it gets kicked up off your wheels. If you can get on it pretty quickly, use
Bug & Tar Wash at a higher dilution ratio. You might be able to cut through that before
it sticks to your paint. If tar gets really bad, you might have to
use a clay bar or microfiber pad and a machine polisher to get it out. If you get on it quickly enough, you can get
on it with some Bug & Tar Wash. All this stuff is coming right off, so it’s
good that we got on these after she got off the road to avoid any permanent damage or
staining. Alright! Now the car is bug-free. I’ll rinse off any contamination so we can
move on to drying it so we don’t get any water spots. Just take your garden hose and rinse it down. Now you see we’ve taken off all the bugs and
all the filth and grime off the front of the car. We’re ready to move on to any drying steps,
so I’m gonna go ahead and dry off this car. We have a few more cars with a whole lot of
bugs all over the surfaces that we need to take off. But you can see how easy it was to use Bug & Tar Wash to remove anything that’s bugging ya on the front of your car.
