Pam? thats an interesting idea... Dunno how safe that is for paint, I mean I cant see it really harming the paint, but it'd be a messy proposition.
I would recommend that before the "mating season" cleaning and polishing the paint to prepare the surface, then apply one coat of EX-P Sealant from poorboysworld.com, let it dry to a haze, and buff it off (shouldnt take but a few minutes) and then let the paint cure for 2 hours, and apply another layer of sealant.
Allow the paint to cure for 24-72 hours to get rid of the vapors essentially. Then apply anywhere from 2-3 coats of nattys blue paste wax (same manufacturer), allow 30 minutes between each panel for the wax to cure.
This whole process will protect your paint extremely well, and it will provide an excellent gloss/shine/look.
*By the way, I only recommend poorboysworld products because my experience with them is excellent, the nattys wax is by far the best wax iv ever used, and the sealant is excellent as well.
Oh and you might want to consider purchasing a small plastic container and put a few micro fiber towels in the container, put the container in the trunk, and carry a bottle of spray wax with you (quick detail spray wax stuff) as this stuff is your best friend when you have fresh bug guts/bird poo on your paint, and is really handy
At the very least use a carnuba wax of some kind. Carnuba is an excellent wax that protects, allows reflection of light, beads water, prevents etching, and allows the paint to breath.
Carnuba also has oils in it that would produce a similar effect as pam, in regards to keeping the bugs off.
