How do you get rid of the biting insect called backswimmers in a swimming pool?

It depends on what the bugs are...if they are mosquitoes, you can get rid of them by circulating the water. Mosquito larvae need still and stagnent water to survive. Not too many other types of bugs will live in the pool water, but many types will use the pool as a water source, so they are living near the pool. You need to include more information in your question such as do they live in the water or do they congregate around the pool, what do they look like, where are you located...etc. More information? They are called backswimmers (sometimes Tennessee Backswimmers)

How do you get rid of dragonfly larvae in swimming pool?

Ensure that your chlorine levels are within the proper range, using chlorine shock to raise it if necessary. Maintaining proper water quality will reduce the appeal of your pool other other adult dragonflies looking for a place to lay their eggs. Check that your pool pump and filtration system are operating properly. If your pump is cycling properly then many larvae may get captured in your skimmer or drains. You can manually remove larvae when you see them. The larvae tend to gather along the pool walls just a couple of inches from the water's surface. They are relatively slow moving and are easy to catch in your hand or with a cleaning net. Since the larvae are carnivorous, given enough time they will actually eat each other since there should be no other food sources in your pool, thus reducing the remaining number. Eventually, the remaining larvae will mature and leave by themselves. Remember that dragonflies are helpful insects that eat mosquitoes and other pests.
