First, I would like to say thank you for any help. Its very appreciated. I live in upstate NY (around the Albany area). I live in a rural small village pretty close to a large creek / small river ) about 1/2 a mile.
I have had a pool for the last 4 years, no issues until last year. We started getting a very large amount of what it looks to be flying ants into the pool.They float on the water then crawl on people in the pool and bite them, its actually a pretty painful bite. My kids, wife, and friends have all been bit many times. I just opened my pool this year and sure enough there is a few dead ones floating around in it already. Pics attached. I would like to identify and attempt to get rid of these.
I currently have terminex and they come out once a month to do a tick and mosquito treatment in my backyard along with a basic treatment around my house quarterly. (Mainly because i have a carpenter bee problem)
Those look like carpenter ants (Camponotus sp.) They make their colonies in dead or decaying wood. They bore into the wood but do not eat it like termites. They are great for breaking up downed trees in the forest but not so good if they attach the wood in your house. Not easy to get rid of, if you have a lot of fallen trees and dead wood around removing it would help but as the adult females (your photos) are winged they can still fly from other areas.
