Why would you want to? They are harmless and a sign that the pond is a healthy ecosystem. Anything you added to the water would likely harm everything there.

Use soapy water. Use 2 dashes of dish soap in a water spray bottle and spray them directly. They die and you can net them out and have them gone forever
