Keep Your Child's Backyard Pool Mosquito Free
About a month ago, I came upon a story about two little kids. Two young boys were swimming in their backyard swimming pool--mixing hot weather and warm water can sometimes bring more than a good time. It just so happens that mosquitoes also love to be around the pool on a nice summer day. Two kids were playing and swimming and learning how to use the new water guns that their dad gave them. They discovered that there was a swarm of mosquitoes flying above the pool and that they would make a great target to practice with their guns. The boys’ mom had heard all of the fun being had and came outside to figure out what was so funny. Just as she stepped outside, the mosquitoes apparently lined up perfectly with her. Before she got a gallon of water to the face, all she had seen was her two boys pointing their water guns directly at her, almost as if they had been waiting for the opportunity. She was noticeably upset as the boys urged they didn’t do it on purpose. After the commotion wore off and she stopped cursing her husband for buying such nonsense water toys, she was pretty pleased with her boys’ problem solving skills.
