The best way to rid your yard of insects is to provide a bird-friendly habitat. Put in a feeder in winter. Put out a bird-bath in summer. Provide shrubs & trees favorable to birds. They eat many many insects, as do frogs.

You can buy from pool shops some stuff to put in the pool water which puts a coating on the top layer of the water and it starves the little bugs of oxygen.

I owned and operated a pool service company for many years. I found that if you squirt a tablespoon or so a month of a quality dish soap(ie dawn, palmolive...), not a dishwasher detergent, the bugs are not able to float on the water and other submersed water bugs are not able to breathe in the water. The soap has many side effects such as helps to break down body and taining oils so they can be filtered out. You can expect your pool chemicals to not fluctuate as much and in some cases use less chlorine or bromine. Enjoy!!
