These insects fly right back into the pool as fast as I can scoop them out...
have there been any answers as to what they are and how do you get rid of them!?

I think they bite too!

thanks in advance,

In order to HELP!!!!! we need you to post your pool volume and test numbers.

Bugs wont live/multiply for very long in a properly chlorinated pool with no algae.

SEARCH THE INTERNET FOR WATERBUGS. I BET YOU HAVE WHAT IS CALLED BACKSWIMMERS. AND YES THEY DO BITE - AND IT HURTS. I WAS TOLD ABOUT AN ALGECIDE MADE BY BIOGARD CALLED BACK-UP. HAVENT TRIED IT YET, BUT WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW WELL IT WORKS. I FOUND THAT IF YOU USE A SKIMMER THAT HAS A DEEP NETTED POCKET, YOU CAN CATCH THEM EASIER AND BEFORE DUMPING THEM OUT - CRUSH THEM IN THE NET. THIS WONT GET RID OF THEM ALL, BUT IT WILL HELP UNTIL YOU DO. AND THEY MULTIPLY VERY QUICKLY!
