So I have been enjoying my pool for a while now thanks to this forum! I do, however, have a problem that cannot be solved with Cl, CYA, MA, or any of the other chemicals that are normally discussed.
For about 3-4 summers, I have had this one bat that loves to torment me, and ONLY ME!! It has flown literally inches from my face and the top of my head It only seems to come around when I am the one outside. My husband can go outside at the same time and work forever without being bothered by it. I can go outside and within a few minutes, here it comes!! We cannot enjoy the pool at night because of this. (Nighttime swims are some of my favorite times in the pool!) I have even started seeing it during midday, though not very often. I am the one who does all the pool work, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Does anybody have any idea why this bat seems to be targeting me? Does anybody know how to get rid of the bat? I know some will say that it is good to have one around to eat the bugs, but frankly, as a southern bread and cornbread fed gal I would rather deal with bugs that this stinkin' bat!!!
