This my be mean but I had had it with these frogs keeping me up at night. Plus attracting snakes to my yard. So last night I took a BB rifle put pellets in it not BB's and killed the big male. I didn't hear one frog last night. I'm hoping the females will hear another male calling them and move on. I had tried catching him for about a week with no luck. Hope this helps

The frogs will return if you just throw them over the fence! Get a trash sack...a deep garbage bag...and round tongs and capture them one by one. Relocate them to the park pond or a lake. Then skim for little egg "strips" or u will have a batch of tadpoles next. This must be repeated a couple of times but you won't have noisy nights or poisonous items like mothballs...that will kill a cat or dog...around. Good luck

The frogs we have have been hiding in the old chipmunk holes underground during the day. Then they come out at sundown. My dogs dig up those holes & chasing them. The type we have are Spring Peeper, they hibernate in shallow holes during the Winter. They eat the bugs. I just scoop and toss over fence. I once found tadpoles in a plant saucer after a heavy fall. These type of frogs are known to be aggressive in laying their eggs! We shock the h*all out of our pool to combat the problem. We can't use poison because of curious kids & dogs. The nearest park, creek & lake are all NY State protected. So transporting them if caught is a fine.

Did you put the moth balls around the pool decking? or the Lawn? Did they damage/stain the pool decking or kill the grass? I have a heavily wooded area that where I will carpet bomb the mothballs. I can flip a frog 4-6 Ft. on a good night.

I have the same problem and am kept awake constantly by loud bullfrogs croaking all night. Salt is the answer! Buy some pool salt which comes in 25kg bags and sprinkle it on the paving around the pool. Frogs don't like salt at all and won't cross the salt. You need to repeat this after rain as it gets washed away easily. But I have found that salt is the only thing that really works and is eco-friendly.
