Giant water bug attack in my pool
Hey Bugman,
I know you received plenty of these photos, but the stories on your site are great. This bug was in my swimming pool in Austin, TX. I was swimming laps and was taking a breather when this thing came at me. I tried to splash it away while backing up and it just kept coming. It chased me out of the pool! I must admit, he is the ugliest, scariest bug I’ve ever seen.

    We just had the same thing happen here in Houston. I told my husband to get out of the pool till I could get the net, but he didn’t believe me. By the time I got back, it was chasing him. He is very, very lucky he didn’t get bitten.
