Preparing my mind for the closing of pool,but trying to stop the Raining day worms from entering .
I have a mesh safety cover on a inground pool and saw a post that some one slid a rope under the edge of the cover to stop worms from entering pool. .. Has anyone had any luck doing that ? Or any other ideas? Thanks again for all of your help

I have a retracting auto cover and still get millipedes in the pool. I've considered using toy pool noodles against the edge of the pool to see if that cuts down the intruders.

I'm just undecided on how to attach it there so that they're temporary yet secure, and don't mar any finish.

Yes it defiantly reduced the amount of worms and leaves, i would say about 50-75%. Used a 1/2 thick rope.

Made it a lot easier to open the pool.
