Welcome to TFP :)

We use dawn dish soap over here and it will kill them within 24 to 48 hours... Start with 1 cup or 230 ml and see if that does it... :)

I'm pretty good at IDing plants and insects but I can't enlarge your image enough on my desk top to see what you have there. are they swimming or only landing on the surface? swarms? day or night? your location says Ireland, is that correct?
