Foreclosed Pools Help Mosquitoes Spawn

Foreclosed homes and their swimming pools: in one report, a haven for skateboarders, in another, a spawning heaven for mosquitoes. Gross, right? The pools can't just be drained to prevent the West Nile bearers from laying their eggs, because, well, they can lay eggs in as little as a bottle cap's worth of water. Instead, "mosquito fish" are being used to gobble up the evil bloodsuckers. Surely acid rain will take care of the rest. [SF Gate]
