Default Bug Trouble

Painting a couple of barns on a farm with Benjamin Moore Oil-Based Wood and Metal Enamel. White roof with white trim and gray base. We started painting the white and immediatly noticed that there were thousands of small bugs stuck to the fresh paint. Does anyone have any ideas or any repellant products they would suggest. Estimated the job for 90 gallons of paint so the cheaper the solution the better.

Not much you can do, they like the smell I guess.

Paint over them. You will get a nice stippled look.

I've heard that a little lemon juice in the paint works.

But that's an OLD wives tale that I musta heard 30 years ago.

You will want to try and find a herbal additive you can add to the paint I think. I am sure there is something out there but you might have to dig a bit on the net.

I agree they love the smell.
