I like just plain old witch hazel to clean out ears, it wont sting if there are any open sores from bugs and disinfects if there are! Just dampen a clean rag (I don't like to use cotton balls because they can leave fluff in the ear) and gently wipe it out while cupping/ supporting the ear in your hand- make sure it is not so wet that it will drip down into the ear.
Swat or roll on work well to keep ears free of bugs, or better yet so you don't have to worry about chemicals in their ears is a flymask with mesh ear covers.
