POOL BUGS

Postby IHATEBUGS! » Fri 01 Aug, 2008 11:15

I have tiny bugs in the pool that look like tiny sticks but they flips around. What could these things be and how to get rid of them? I shocked it yesterday and the pump has been running for about 10 hours now.

Mosquitoes, although unlikely to survive, are usually not black in their larval stage. The mosquito larvae appear as a comma shape, with the fatter part at the surface of the water (they breathe air), and the "tail" hanging down. They exhibit erratic jumpy movements in the water.

If you believe they may be mosquitoes, a chlorine shock treatment should get rid of them in no time.

My pool and two of my neighbors have the same problem. We live in NJ and have had a lot of rain, and the weather has been hot and humid. There seems to be hundreds of thousands, an they swim together and form little circles that look like oil spots.. I thought that's what is was because the landscaper was her doing some work. I opened the skimmer lid and saw them crawling all over!!! We shocked the pool and 2 days later they were back in force!! I brought a solo cup to the local pool store and they did not know what they were.. HELP!

I'm concern that it could be moskitos.I bet is full of those water bugs.These bugs look more like fleas than mosquitos. They are prolific after rain in warmer weather, but once again, I have yet to see one be any more than an annoyance.
