tiny bugs in my pond.
Hi...I have a small pond with water lilies, and some bog plants in it. WE have been experiencing a severe drought this summer, and the algae bloom has been almost uncontrollable. WE would use algae fix and then flush the pond out for about 1 hour. Suddenly these tiny bugs appeared in the pond. They look like rose thrips, same size and color. Now there are literally MILLIONS of these bugs, clustering about the leaves, swimming in the pond. There is no more algae in my pond! What ARE these bugs, and are they actually beneficial? Any help with this matter is appreciated!
