How to remove dead Thunderflies from an LCD monitor

I have Dell laptop with a matte screen under warranty.

A bug has crawled under the glass/plastic(?) on my screen. It was crawling around so I put the laptop on standby, cleaned screen and after I turned it on, the insect wasn't moving any longer - it is dead probably and looks like dead pixel.

How do I remove it??

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Try with a wet tissue (water only) to moister the insect. It may take a while, but water proved to be the best laptop screen cleaner for me. – Nicu Zecheru Aug 11 '11 at 16:06
Identical question… – RedGrittyBrick Aug 11 '11 at 16:33

There is no practical way for end-users to remove dead thrips/thunderflies from the inner layers of LCD screens where they like to get lost and die.
