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
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.
Your chlorine level needs to be increased to 3-5ppm and kept at that level. This will help you control them.
Water striders have tiny hairs on their feet that enables them to walk on the surface tension of water without getting wet.

Add a bottle of "Pool First Aid". This will break the water's surface tension and the striders can't stay afloat and will drown. This is a temporary fix because, in my experience, more always show up.
An insect that skims along water striders. The scientific name for these insects is Gerridae. The majority of these water striders are freshwater bugs.
Surface tension is important to water striders because surface tension gives them the ability to float and not sink and drown.
they are called water striders
yes they are called water striders!

Yes. Water Striders do it all the time.

Insects that are able to walk across the surface of water are called water striders. Water striders make use of the high surface tension of water together with their long, hydrophobic legs to stay above water.

Their legs have a hight amount of surface area, so they do not break the surface tension of water.
Take your chlorine levels to 3-5 ppm and keep it there.
detergents and water striders can also do that.
the scientific name is Hemiptera: Gerridae. they are also known as water bugs, water skimmers, water striders, water skippers, or jesus bugs.
A water strider can stand on water because its feet are covered with thousands of fuzzy little hairs that trap air and create a floating cushion.
Due to the unusually strong cohesive forces between water molecules, water has an unusually high surface tension. Water striders take advantage of this surface tension by "walking" over the water and able to not break through the surface of the water. As a classic example of form fits function, the light body weight and thin legs of the water strider further aid it in doing this.
