Bug shields (also known as bug deflectors) keep bugs away from your windshield and hood. They protect your windshield and paint from insects, rocks, and other debris. WeatherTech, AVS and ProMaxx are trusted brands that offer bug shields and wind deflectors. They come in a variety of finishes including clear, matte black and smoke.
Bugs on your windshield and front of your vehicle can make it difficult to see and cause visibility problems. The chemicals in the insects’ bodies can cause etching, which may be impossible to remove with simple polishing. Airborne debris and stones can cause small pits in your windshield and paint, which can lead to a decrease in vehicle appearance and reduce your ability see clearly.
A bug shield can solve your stone and insect problems. Bug shields have a lip that channels the airflow and bugs up and above your vehicle. For better visibility and more effective windshield wiper operation, your windshield will be clearer, and your wipers will last longer. This shield will protect your hood’s leading edge from chips and damage caused by stones or other airborne debris.
