    Pool Light and Bugs

    Ok this problay seems like a dumb question, but here goes I have a multi color pool light that changes to any of 4 colors pink,green,blue,and white. My question is I love to have the light on when we have folks over in the evening but we seem to get a lot of flying bugs in the pool no matter which color I have it set to. I was wondering what other folks have found that helps keep the bugs out the pool with the light on or is there no good solution other than leave the light off. Tiki tourches help but only a little.

    We do the Tiki torches. It's the only thing we've found that doesn't draw bugs.

    Bugs will be attracted to the light regardless. Purchase a bug zapper and place it towards the deep end of the pool, closest to the light.
