Bugs, frogs, salamanders, tadpoles or any other bugs that are attracted to your swimming pool water will die when you super chlorinate or "shock" your pool.

How do you get rid of water bugs in a swimming pool?

If these are the "swimmer" type of bugs, you can get rid of them in the pool by putting a couple tablespoons of Lemon Joy on TOP of the water. I usually wait until dark, turn off the pump, allow the pool surface to smooth out, then turn on the pool light - the bugs are drawn to the light. Then I only have a small area to cover with the Lemon Joy. When the bugs surface for air, they will get covered with the soap and cannot breathe. You have to be patient and wait for the bugs to come to the light, then come up for air. By the next morning the soap is neutralized and the dead bugs are floating on the surface. Another option: Put 3 tbsp. of liquid dish detergent into the spray bottle. Fill the remainder of the spray bottle with water and mix together. Spray your soap solution directly onto any groupings of water bugs you can find.Spray the solution into the water along the perimeter of your pool. Wait a few hours. The bugs will drown and get cleaned out by the pool filters. You may repeat this procedure as often as necessary. The dish soap is PH balanced and biodegrades. Small quantities will not harm your pool.

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)
