Springtails live in moist soil and mulch around the pool. I'm on day 4 after spraying a Bifen-based insecticide around my pool. Although the numbers have dropped significantly, they still find their way into the pool and where they die and float on on the surface. I'm going to try a stronger dose later this week. The good news is I don't have to worry about other pests like ants and spiders around the pool.

Hello. Here are a few pictures I took today which I believe are springtails in my pool. We have a full blown infestation of the little creatures. Thousands of them are hoping back and forth along the waterline in our pool. Every time it rains or if we run the sprinklers in lawn they come out in the thousands.
