    Flying Ants??

    Hello fellow pool lovers. My pool was almost completely full as of yesterday. They installers will be putting in the pump and skimmer tomorrow. This morning when I went out to check on the pool there were a bunch of bugs that look like ants with wings floating around the pool. Once I add my chemicals (BBB), will this keep the bugs away? If not what can I do about this? I've never seen the bugs before we got the pool. Thanks in advance for any responses.

    It seems like this is a common occurrence of "drone" ants at this time of year. We are discussing it on the Just Getting Started board. flying-ants-t61711.html

    Thanks for the response. It did rain the night before so maybe they'll go away.
