Mosquito Repellent


Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes and millions of mosquitoes to go with them.

It was a summer afternoon. I had heard my 2 year old son complaining about the ”skeeters” biting him. He rode off quickly on his tricycle, probably thinking he could out ride them. I continued to water the plants. I heard him stop momentarily, and then the riding resumed. From the corner of my eye, I saw a mesh laundry basket moving at tricycle pace. My son had indeed fashioned a cab for his tricycle, using the laundry basket, from the neighbor’s garage. He could now enjoy a mosquito free tricycle ride.

Our neighbor was so impressed with the creation, he allowed us to keep the laundry basket. He was ”skeeter” free for the rest of the summer.
