One thing I learned from many years in the pacific is where you did not park
1. under a tree within 30 feet of any fruiting tree or shrub
2. directly in the flight path from such a tree to a tall roosting type
tree with lots of droppings under it.
3. this was daytime or nighttime.
Birds and bats that eat vast amounts of fruit have extremely acidic
droppings that will do a better job than a commercial stripper if you donšt
have about six coats of wax on the vehicle.
