Has anyone found a solution to the tiny, tiny, little black bugs that collect on top of the water (in groups) that occur after a rain? They also have a terrible odor when you skim them from the pool. I've only had the pool for two months and it seems they showed up after putting Zoysia sod about four feet from the pool.
Any help would be appreciated! It's driving me crazy and it takes the skimmer all day to clean them out.

I just took my baby out of our little baby pool because I noticed tiny black things clumped together on her toys. I empty and clean the pool every other day, but I also noticed those little yellowish bugs swimming above and under the water (I assume the black things are the eggs?). Our pool is away from grass on our deck, so I guess they fly up there like someone else said. I took her out because one did bite me and I didn't want them getting to her. Anyway, I am going to try the suggestion of Dawn.

You can kill them with a spray bottle of skin-so-soft oil and water mixter spray all around the sides of the pool and put son directly on the water. It makes the pool smell good and doesn't hurt anyone or anything! Oh and your skin is so soft after swimming!
I knocked em down in an hour and killed them completely off in a couple days!

I have noticed the same bugs in my pool after installing new sod recently. I also notice these tiny bugs jumping/ flying around the air in the areas where the grass was installed. Has anyone been able to confirm the identity of these microbugs, also has anyone had any luck treating the lawn with insecticides to kill them?

My neighbors just got a new plastic pool, a large one. It's made in China. Could they be somehow coming with the pools..?
Thank You,

Bugs in pool water generally appear because of inadequate share servicing. However, don't let that get you down. If you want a quicker solution, there are substances designed specifically to destroy bugs in pool water.

I just came in from checking our pool. After I dumped the skimmer basket, I noticed little things floating on the water. They are actually tiny bugs, about the size of a pin head, but not circular, more oval shaped. They look brownish tan...not brown. They are all over my pool. I scooped some out in a cup. They swim, climb, and jump. Does anyone know what they are and where they came from? Is it dangerous to swim in the water? My husband mowed the lawn last night and this morning we had a rain shower. Thank you
ps....salt water pool, but currently not enough salt but lots of chlorine!

I have had a salt pool for 7 years and just within the last 2 months I have had these little black critters. At first I thought they were grease ants coming from under the concrete deck but then I noticed they have little tiny wings. I skimmer basket has a sock so each morning I wash hundreds of them out.

Does anyone else have this description?
