    Rollie Pollies

    Every morning I have to remove Rollie Pollies that have drowned in the pool overnight. Any suggestion on how to keep them out?

    What are your chemical readings? Also, do you use any type of yard service that sprays for bugs?

    My chemicals are balanced. No I do not use any service for spraying for bugs. I suppose they come out of the thatch in the grass beside the deck and the covered receptacle for the pool cover. Everything I read says that they need moisture to survive and seek out the pool and end up drowning.

    Sorry I can't help. All I usually have is about 50 black beetles. Never once seen a Rollie pollie near the pool.
