How To Get Rid Of Frogs?

Frog infestation can become a serious problem for you. And if a frog is placed in your yard then this is not less then a headache for you and your neighborhood. Sounds made by frogs are not less then music for many people. But this music turns into a nightmare when you try to sleep in a house that is having a frog in the yard. It is very tedious to get rid of the frogs, but this article provides you some tips to remove the frogs from your place.

Tips to get rid of frogs
Frog1. In very first step of frog removal you have to drain out all the water from your yard (that is acquired by some frog). Because a yard that is having water in it; attract the frogs to come and swim. If you have a swimming pool in your house then you should cover it (by using some hard cover) in order to make the pool inaccessible for the frogs. This will force the frogs to leave your house.

2. Frogs always have a tendency to acquire that place where they get enough food supply. If you have mosquitoes and flies in your yard, then you have to get rid of them for removing the frogs from your yard. For this purpose, you can use the fly traps or citronella candle. Drain out any sort of water (standing) from your yard; it will prevent mosquitoes breeding in your yard.

3. Your grass should not be over grown, because frogs always need a place to hide. And tall grass acts as a perfect hiding place for frogs. If you have any large holes in your yard, then you should fill up them by using soil. Otherwise these holes can become great homes for the frogs.

4. You can also apply the snake repellent at surroundings of your yard. This will keep frogs away from your yard, because they will run away from the odor. But you should use the snake repellent with extreme cares. Before using it; read the instructions provided on the can of snake repellent. Keep you animals and children away from the area of application; until it dries completely.

5. If you are having some creek that is running through the yard, then be sure about pulling all the plants and weeds around the creek. Otherwise frogs may swim up through the creek and they will make the homes in the surrounding plants and weeds. If you remove the shelter of the frogs from your yard, then frogs will also leave your yard.

Stubborn frogs
Some frogs are stubborn by nature and it can be tedious to remove such frogs from your yard. But with a little extra effort you can also deal with such stubborn frogs. After intense efforts of frog removal, if they are getting back again and again, then you should install the netting around your yard. This netting will restrict the entrance of the frogs in your yard. And hence they will look for some other shelter.

Hi My neighbor and I live next door to each other and we have been trying to get rid of frogs for two years. They come out around 8pm and part at our door. They are stubborn and we are afraid of them. They are very large and ugly. If we are not in our apartment by 8:30pm we would have to call someone to come and remove them or sleep somehwere else till morning. They are very loud. Any advice. Thank you.

Hi there,

It’s rainy season and for 3 consecutive days now, there are 2 to 3 small frogs in front of our house in the evening after it rains. Can someone help me with this?

Our garage is concrete, however across the street, there’s a creek.

Thanks!

My neighbors have an abandoned in-ground pool that resembles a swamp, so we always get our share of mosquitos, frogs, etc. This year they have migrated to my yard and laid 100′s of eggs on my pool cover! There’s just enough water for the wogs to grow and eat. What I did: I heard a few ways to get rid of the frogs, but didn’t want to kill them – just deter them, so… I used a very mild bleach mix, 2/3 cup of bleach to 2-3 gallons of water. Sprayed this around the perimeter of the pool, and along the edge of the pool fence. They won’t go near it, because bleach can kill them. It has the same effect that salt on a slug has. Yuk. So, this keeps the frogs at bay. As for the wogs – I spent 1-2 hours netting as many as I could and moved them to a nearby brook. Once you get good at netting them, you can get 1-2 dozen on each net scoop. So in no time, you’ll have hundreds in your bucket, waiting to be relocated. Good Luck!

Well… the frogs came back after the bleach mixture wore off. I didn’t want to keep spraying the bleach mix all season, so my wife and I spent an hour catching the frogs after sunset. This was much easier than I expected. Here’s the drill: I gave my wife a 5 gallon bucket with a towel over top (cause they can jump out). I had a coffee can with a thin piece of plastic.

We lit the frogs with a flashlight, and it has the same effect as the “dear in the headlights,” i.e., when the light gets in their eyes, they freeze. So, at this point, I placed the coffee can over the frog (on my cement pool pad) and slipped the thin plastic under the can. Waa-Laa! Caught frog. Then, we peeled back a little bit of the towel, and shook the frog out of the coffee can into the 5 gallon bucket, then re-covered the bucket with the towel.

Repeat until you have the majority of the frogs. Tonight we have a quiet yard, but unfortunately, we now feel the mosquitoes. It’s a trade off. We drove a few miles and released the frogs into a nearby lake. Was a lot easier than I ever expected. Happy Frogging!
