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.
BULLFROG PROOF BARRIER
The 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.
BEST BULLFROG REPELLENT SPRAY
To keep bullfrogs from entering your property, treat all points of entry with our PEST AWAY SPRAY.
Pest Away is made with all natural organic essential oils and gets mixed with water. It won’t harm wildlife, insects, birds, pets, etc. but due to it being so concentrated, it makes frogs “wary” of treated areas.
They can smell the over abundant amount of these natural oils and this makes them feel uneasy and alarmed about the area/treated plants. In turn, they won’t want to stick around where its been applied. This makes Pest Away a great way to naturally repel unwanted pesky frogs and reptiles like lizards and snakes.
Our 8 oz jar mixes 2 oz per gallon of water and will treat up to 800 sq/ft of plants/ground/sides of a building when treating for frogs.
Any good PUMP SPRAYER can be used to apply the Pest Away; ours is super light yet durable and easy to service.
