I just bought a house in December that had an 24' x 48" AG in the back yard that needed alot of work. It was half full of dark murky water, cut liner in spots near the top, and was missing the pump and filter. Guess the previous owners took it with them? After months of working on the house and it getting hotter it was time to work on the pool. With careful consideration it was decided that it would be cheaper to just buy a new pool and have it professionaly installed. So this past Friday my brand new 24' x 52" pool was installed. Now I just need to redo the deck that is now too short and badly rotted. For the past couple of days I have been keeping an eye on the pool as it is filling up. When I go out to check it all of the top rails (resin) are covered with millions (it seems like) of tiny yellow bugs. I sprayed them down with ant poison, but the next day they were back. From what I found online they are called thrips. Is this correct? Why are they covering my pool? They swarm all over me when I go near the pool and I cannot enjoy it. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how do I get rid of them?
