Since I have an intex pool, the liner at the top has a small opening above the top seem. The other day, the kids noticed there were yellow jackets in there. The boys splashed them away and said some of them were dead.
I don't allow food or drink near my pool and kids have have clean hands and feet before they get in so I know it's not that.
I know Crape Myrtle trees have a nectar to them and some flowers do fall into the pool, but I clean them out twice a day. My only other idea is that maybe because we haven't much rain in the past 2-3 weeks they're just after the water?
Any suggestions on how to get rid of them? I just looked in just one seem and there were 5 in there. Not counting the others flying around. I know I can't use insecticide, but any ideas on how to get them gone and prevent return?
