How to Get Bugs Away From Your Pool

Summertime is the best time of year, especially when you have a pool to cool off in. However, there's one downside to having a pool - bugs! In this blog post, we will discuss some tips on how to get bugs away from your pool and keep it bug-free all summer long!

There are a few things you can do to prevent bugs from taking over your pool. First, make sure there is no standing water around the pool area. Bugs are attracted to stagnant water, so getting rid of any puddles or pooled water will help deter them. You should also keep the area around your pool clean and free of debris. Bugs are attracted to clutter, so a tidy pool area will help keep them away. Finally, you can use bug repellent around the perimeter of your pool. This will create a barrier that bugs will not want to cross.

What is a Bug Misting System?

A bug misting system is a great way to keep bugs away from your pool. The system consists of a series of nozzles that are installed around the perimeter of your pool. The nozzles are connected to a pump and reservoir of insecticide. When the system is turned on, the pump will send insecticide through the nozzles, creating a fine mist that will kill and repel bugs. The best part about a bug misting system is that it is completely automatic - you can set it and forget it!

If you are looking for a way to keep your pool free of bugs this summer, a bug misting system is the way to go!

Another option is to build a screen around your pool.  This will create a physical barrier that bugs cannot cross. The downside to this option is that it can be time-consuming and expensive. The cost of building a screen can  range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the size of your pool.

If you want to keep bugs away from your pool but don't want to spend a lot of money, there are a few DIY options you can try. One option is to make your own bug repellent. There are many recipes for DIY bug repellents online, and most of them use ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Another option is to buy a bug zapper. Bug zappers emit a high-pitched noise that bugs find annoying, so they will stay away from the area where the zapper is located.

By following these tips, you can enjoy your pool all summer long without having to worry about pesky bugs!
