    controlling seems to be centered around adequate chlorine at all time. Mechanical removal seem the best bet to get rid of them.

    I dont know where these little buggers hideout. I see them on the pool when the pump has been off for a while. They cruise around and eat the flying ants that fall in the pool. When I dose the chlorine up or have the pump running they are no where to be found. Curious...
