I had tested the pool last night and dosed with bleach. Everything looked fine. It is hitting the "dog days" up around here where dew points hover around the low 70s and temps at night are about the same. Dew basically collects on you at night sometimes these days the air is so humid. Well apparently that means party time for the critters in my neighborhood. This morning I gave the pool a looking over before heading to work. Normally, I find a frog or two and maybe a mouse per week in the pool (live or dead). What I saw this morning was: 5 dead frogs in skimmers, 2 live frogs in pool with one of them being a about the size of a desert plate, 1 dead mouse in skimmer, 12 crickets in skimmers and about 5000 gnats floating on the surface. I wrangled the live frog with my skimmer net after some disgreement between us about where he belonged and dipped out the rest of the casualties then skimmed off a good portion of the insects (my daughter can get the rest while I'm at work). Also on my trip to grab some bleach to up the FC just a smidge after this critter shindig, another dead mouse greeted me in the center of my garage! I think the wildlife knows that summer is dwindling just as well us the rest of us Minnesotans and are getting their partying done before it's over.
