I have a question for those of you who have had and AGP for a while. I've noticed lately that every single stinging insect known to man likes - no wait - LOVES my pool ladder. They buzz around and land on my ladder all day long. Honey bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, etc. Sometimes it gets to the point where I have to swat away 3-4 different stinging insects just so that my son can get in and out of the pool. It's also not very nice having them so close to where we are swimming.
Has anyone else experienced this? These things are specifically attracted to the ladder. Does anyone have any ideas why? I know bees are attracted to bright colors, but it seems to involve more than this. They seem to care less about the deck, pool, or anything else around but they swarm around the ladder.
