I reside in the Washington DC DMV and past 2 weeks we have been hit hard with cicadas which are wreaking havoc in many ways including cars. In particular car radiators and I looked through to the front grill of my car and it has a good amount of those large bugs splattered all against the front of the radiator. Would I assume maybe best means to dislodge and get rid of these bugs from the front of the radiator may be to hose them off the best means through the black front grills? I don't see any easy access to the front of the radiator to take a cloth or something to clean the front.

Soak it down, let it sit for a bit and do what you can from the front. There are I believe 2 more "radiators" on the engine side of it so the water may not reach from the engine side.

There is a great spot between the body front and the scudetto where the cicadas like to go to die. I had to pick them out with a toothpick.

Ours haven’t emerged yet. I’m in no hurry to see them or clean them.

Yes, I have noticed that after some extended highway drives, the front of my car is some sort of bug massacre... What can you do? Prob nothing..

I also noticed that bugs around South Philly love Trofeo White Tri-Coat, there is always some bug just hovering over the paint or just on the paint, maybe it's because the car is white, but I don't think I never noticed this with my red or grey Beamers before.
