Do you have frogs in your pool?
If so, you aren’t alone. Frogs are one of the most common swimming pool pests. After all, these amphibious creatures are attracted to water.
One of the worst things about finding frogs in your pool is stumbling across the dead ones. It’s no fun to remove them, and you (and your kids) might find the task a little depressing.
So, in this article, we talk about how to keep frogs out of your pool.
Tip #1: Use a Pool Cover
Frogs are attracted to your pool more often during the nighttime hours when the insects come out.
If you pull your cover over your pull during the night, you prevent bugs and frogs from getting into your pool.
Tip #2: Get Rid of Weeds
If your flower beds are full of weeds, you can bet there are frogs hiding inside.
To reduce the frogs in your backyard, clean up your weeds on a regular basis.
Tip #3: Don’t Use Lights
Turn off the lights in your backyard and around your pool if you aren’t using it.
Why? Lights attract bugs which attract frogs. Be sure and turn the lights off each evening.
Tip #5: Install a Water Feature
Bugs like stagnant water. Frogs like bugs.
So, if you ensure your water is moving, you’ll have less of both – frogs and insects.
Tip #6: Buy a Frog Log
This assumes you’re okay with frogs actually taking a midnight swim in your pool.
You can purchase a frog log that creates a bridge from the water to the pool deck so the frogs can get out of your pool without drowning.
You can use these tips to keep frogs out of your pool, but if they do get in, it’s good to know that they aren’t actually bad for your pool.
On the good side, they do eat a lot of bugs. This means they’re devouring hundreds of mosquitoes every night.
