No one wants water bugs in their pool. And there’s nothing quite so disheartening as going out for a swim only to discover a layer of dead flies floating on the surface of your pool.
There are two common types of water bugs that you’ll probably find in your pool, and rest assured—they are not roaches!
Like all animals, insects are attracted to water, but the pests you really need to be worried about are ants. These nefarious critters will burrow through the vinyl lining in order to get a drink of the good stuff. Unfortunately, in doing so they will cause borderline unrepairable damage to your pool structurally. Their drowned carcasses can and will overload your pool filter.
To avoid this headache, simply make use of normal home pest control service to keep these pests off your property all together, especially if you’re dealing with ants in other outdoor settings.
