Worms in my Pool. Please help.


May 24, 2017
Hi I had mild algae in the pool. I just finished SLAMing the pool last weekend. I think this is independent, but now I have multiple (mostly black, some white) medium size worms in the pool. Picture attached. They are ~2 inches long. I removed all the ones I could see today. I saw 1 or 2 last week and this week after SLAMing they seem to be multiplying at an alarming rate.

Any idea what these are and what I can do to kill them? Thanks.

Do you live near any plant stores/nursery, college, garden stores, tractor supply stores, ag stores, feed stores, or pest control retail locations?

If so, perhaps capture a live one and bring around until you get a free ID and treatment suggestions! I've heard this work for others with different little cuties. Report back please! If we can get an ID, we can also internet research it!
