Frogs are common throughout the world. There are over 85 species here in the United States. The most common species include tree frogs, toads and bullfrogs. Tree frogs and bullfrogs are most common where there is adequate water for their survival and reproduction. Toads are more prevalent where it is dry. Though tree frogs are considered beneficial because they eat insects, in some cases local populations can become a nuisance.

Bullfrogs can become a problem for many reasons. Mostly water dwelling, these frogs will migrate by the thousands when seeking water. They commonly exist in ponds and lakes but adults will forage to new environments when the local water supply isn’t adequate or if they can’t find food. Bullfrogs will readily move into any body of water they find. This includes pools, koi ponds, lakes, streams, swamps, drainage ditches and even bird baths. Bullfrogs will eat most any insect but also love to feast on fish eggs and small fish larvae. When bullfrogs move into ponds used for fish reproduction like those found on fish farms, the damage they do can be costly. For this reason there are several control measures which might have to be done.



ScreeningThe first way to control bullfrogs is to install a barrier through which they cannot enter. A very cost effective barrier to use is our high strength VINYL SCREENING. There are many locations where it can be installed to stop invading bullfrogs. If you already have a property fence in place but it’s not keeping them out, the mesh of the wire might be too wide. Add screening to the bottom 24 inches. Be sure to plant at least 6 inches in the ground so no gaps exist.

This same screen can be set up to work like a fence. Make sure it’s at least 24 inches tall and 6 inches in the ground. Installing it around any pond or body of water can keep them out. It comes 4 feet wide so you can make a fence tall enough to stop them.







Pest Rid GranulesTo keep bull frogs away without the use of screens, set out PEST RID GRANULES.  The goal here is to establish an invisible barrier over which they will not want to enter. So to keep them out, you’ll need to apply the granules where they’re likely to enter property. Also treat around ponds,  streams and damp areas they target.

Pest Rid is made from natural ingredients and is federally exempt from needing a registration because its safe for use around people and pets. The mode of action is quite unique. Basically because the ingredients are more concentrated than what normally appears in nature, the target pests get “alarmed” and their natural reaction to “flee” kicks in. Generally they’ll leave where Pest Rid granules and spray has been applied within one day.

Pest Rid comes in 2 lb jug which will cover up to 500 sq/ft and should be renewed monthly. They serve as the “base” of the treatment by absorbing the Pest Rid spray and keeping it active twice as long compared to just the spray alone.

Pest Rid Granules




Pest Rid LiquidAfter setting out the granules, spray over the top with  PEST RID SPRAY. dUse 32 oz of spray per 125 sq/ft of area; the 1 gallon jug can treat up to 500 sq/ft. Basically you want to spray all areas where the granules have ben applied and any other surfaces you’ve seen bullfrog activity. Like the granules, Pest Rid spray is made from all natural ingredients and exempt from federal registration making it ideal for sensitive areas like ponds. It won’t hurt aquatic life and you’ll get instant results which frogs leaving the area immediately after the treatment is in place. Pest Rid spray will last 4 weeks or more when used with the granules. If used by itself, you’ll need to retreat every 2-3 weeks. But once the frogs have move away, treat every 30 days to insure they don’t return.

Pest Rid Liquid




The quart sized Pest Rid comes with a trigger sprayer on top as seen in the picture. For the gallon, you’ll need a good PUMP SPRAYER to treat.

Is this smell something that frogs don’t like? Also, is it a smell that people don’t like? Thanks.

Will the granules get rid of the bull frogs in my small fish pond if I put it around the edge of the pond? Will it hurt my fish?
