    What is this ????

    New to the Pool game ... We left on Vacation for a couple weeks and come back to these things in our pool ? I can't find anything on google images that resemble it besides a rat tail maggot and it doesn't really look like it ... ImageUploadedByTapatalk1436060459.540660.jpg

    Is it an actual creature? Looks like a wad of packing tape to me.

    Re: What is this ????

    I'm going nuts over here! Do you touch it yet? Does it feel like it was ever living? How long is it? If only 1/2 to 2", it could be a hydra. It looks bigger though. Did you ever see any of them alive and moving?

    I'm guessing that it's not organic. Maybe a neighbor built something and the trash got caught in the wind.

    Check with your local extension office and speak to the Agriculture and Natural resources agent or call Department of Natural resources.
