    What are those bugs that you find on top of your pool cover after water has collected on top of the cover. There very fast moving and seem to be skating on top. There not flying but staying on the very top

    I have them on! Send me a magnifying glass o.o

    We always just called them water bugs. I'm sure they have a real name somewhere. 

    I think they're called Skipper bugs or water skaters

    Pond skaters, members of the Amphibicorsiae, the commonest species is Hydrometra stagnorum.One of their main features is the coating of fine water- repelling hairson their undersides which prevent them getting wet.
