I love summer, the sports, the time outside, the opportunity fo leave the windows open all day long, and those warm evenings that seem to go on for hours and hours. But I’m not alone. Billions of bugs take advantage of those same things–especialy those open windows–to feast on the blood of the unsuspecting–and unprotected–humans who live in my house.
In most places, window screens do a great job of keeping bugs and thier victims separated. But, as (bad) luck would have it, the people who built my condo complex didn’t install screens. And since the windows are all custom sizes, it would cost about $1500 to have them made. That seemed like overkill (although when it comes to mosquitos, there’s no such thing as overkill).
So to solve this annoying problem, I’m partnering with @BabyCostcutters and @Dynatrap, makers of pesticide-free and environmentally friendly insect traps. On June 14, we are having a fun “Backyard Battle” Twitter party between @BabyCostcutters and @MrDad to see who rules the backyard and to encourage bug-free time spent outdoors. We will discuss what makes a great backyard bash and and how to prevent bugs from crashing the party–even if you happen to be inside.
