    literally millions of tiny black bugs in clusters on surface

    I have salt water pool. We had a party and ended up w/ some solo cups at the bottom. I turned the filter / cleaner off for 2 days so I could get junk off the bottom before it messed up the cleaner.

    I am in Dallas and we just had an insane storm come through on Tuesday.

    At any rate, I go to clean the pool yesterday and I see the surface is just coated with millions of little flea like bugs. some in clusters, and others spread about. Does anyone know what these are and how to get rid of em?

    Also should I be worried that they are all over my yard and I am only seeing these because thay are in the pool?
    This is freaky...
