  1. We are prohibited from giving any pest control advice. We are not professionally trained doctors or certified pest control experts therefore we cannot legally give advice about pests. Not only does pest biology vary between states, but the laws do as well. Our community is international, and these all complicate things to a point where we cannot be qualified to answer any questions about pest control.
  2. To create more content you love, we have decided to not accept identification requests. Questions about identification or help with pest control is something that can be handled better by people with the infrastructure to respond to hundreds of emails a week with qualified specialists. Therefore, we will be only answering questions unique to insect biology, physiology, or ecology.
  3. Please check out our Resources Page if you have a query about either Pest Control or Identification Requests.
  4. We do not handle academic assignments. Please  see our rules.
  5. If you are coming here for a Media Request, please use this form.

    I have a pool and every now and again I get these little black floating bugs that cover parts of the pool. They are so small that I can’t scoop them up the net until about 1 – 2 later when they have grown larger in size. They seem to be laid by small flying insect. I would like to know the name of these insects, their life cycle and if there are any natural plants/herbs that will keep them away from my pool?
