My husband and I had a big bucket of water sitting out behind our house. We were just getting around to cleaning it out when we noticed these little bugs. They look all black, about 4-5mm long and look like they have little spikes sticking out the sides of their bodies. They never come out of the water, they just swim around(verry slowly). We dont know how they got there and dont know what they are. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

sounds kinda gross sarah but there are bugs everywhere - our bodies are hosts to millions of them, and even little tiny fleas have colonies of their own mini-flea pests crawling around on them so if scrubbing makes you feel good, go ahead. the only thing i know that kills every bug is 125 degrees f of dry heat for 1/2 hour. that dehydrates them.

they mighta been in the bucket or water waiting to hatch or something mighta buzzed by and left eggs or something dropped from the ceiling or - my dad caught me sipping snowmelt ditch water when i was a kid so he gathered some in a jar and we watched it. after a few days he pointed to something and i said it was just a horsehair. i got a lot less cocky when that horsehair started swimming around! :)

object lessons don't need any preaching. they teach all by themselves.
