Frogs

We continue to get frogs every time it rains. If we don't have rain? No frogs! But now it's starting to get scary. I think they've heard that the pool heater will be up and running for the coming holiday weekend. (woohoo!!) They've morphed into a new species and they are bringing their babies with them!

Does anyone have any ideas of what to do next?

Is that a real frog on top of the fake frog?  I know Rick got the fake frog partly in the hopes it would scare away the real ones.  Yeah, right!  Pretty funny - the photo but not your problem!  As the Google Queen, here is what I found.  They may actually be toads and not frogs?

According to this, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it, unfortunately.

C, what do you mean “fake frog!” I told you they were morphing. wink No, definitely frogs. Toads can’t survive in the water. These guys are green, webbed toes, etc. Annoying!!!

LOL—that is definitely not a species of frog I became familiar with in New Jersey!

Steve, they are quite rare.

What to do next? Stop going to Chinatown.
