    Drain fly larvae living in standing water on pool deck

    I run 3 small pools at a fitness center and we recently discovered drain fly larvae (little black worm like things) living in standing water under benches on the pool deck. Any suggestions on the best method to eradicate these things? Our members are extremely demanding when it comes to cleanliness and sanitation so even though I'm sure they are harmless, I need them gone as quickly as possible!

    have you tried chlorinating the water they're in?
