How do you get rid of water bugs?

I have water bugs in my pool that I am getting ready to prepare to cover for winter.

The best way to get rid of water bugs is to put a few tablespoons of dish detergent on the water surface, turn off the swimming pool pump, wait until dark, and turn on the pool lights. The following morning, you can skim the dead bugs from the water.

Water bugs are a good indication that you've got algae in the pool. Treat with algaecide and it should keep the bugs away.

Water bugs are easily gotten rid of by filling a spray bottle with ammonia and water then spray a barrier around the outskirts of the pool area. Spray at night time and by morning the scent will be gone.
