Do any of you have a problem with spiders walking around on the surface of your pool? Every so often, one or two will find their way into the house. They look like a small wolf spider. Oh, by the way, spiders can walk on water as they are lighter than the surface of the water.

haven't had any walking on water that we have seen, but with our recent warm up, on Sunday we counted 4 rather large garden spiders hanging out in our pool. ICK!

I get them in the Summer too. The buggers swim too!

Haven't seen spiders yet, but we do get skimmer bugs. I've had to fish them out in the past but I'm going to try some pool chemicals from my normal order this year. How have you dealt with them in the past?

This might be helpful also spiders in the pool
