What do you think?

Dave,

I've not heard of this product or tried something similar so I can't really say how effective it is. We don't carry anything silicone based you put on to help with bug clean ups. Many variations of silicone were actually bad for the paint so the majority of mfgs have stopped using it on the paint, trim, etc. It's certainly possible a different formulation has proven to be more effective and safe but I'm a bit skeptical until I hear/see more. In general I've used products like the Chemical Guys Bug Bugger & Tar Remover to help clean them up and a traditional sealant and wax for protection. Keep us posted if you have more info and pictures of results.
