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 a water supply. They commonly exist in ponds and lakes but adults will forage to new environments when local water supply isn’t adequate or if they cannot find enough 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 upon fish eggs and small larvae. When bullfrogs move into ponds that are 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.
The first way to get bullfrog control is to install a barrier through which they cannot enter. And a very cost effective barrier to use is either NETTING or SCREENING. There are many locations where netting can prove effective at holding them off. If you already have a property fence in place but it’s not solid enough to keep out bullfrogs, add some netting to it along the base and up at least 24 inches. Be sure to plant the netting in the ground at least 6 inches so no gaps exist. This same netting can be set up independent of 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 you wish to protect will help. You may also opt to place the netting over the water though doing this on a large area isn’t practical. Choose the netting that will have a small enough grid to work. For adult frogs, either the 3/4″ or 1/2″ Netting will do the job. If you have mostly small juvenile bullfrogs active, get the fine SCREENING.
BULLFROG REPELLENT GRANULES
To keep bull frogs away without the use of screening or netting, set out some PEST RID GRANULES. This product is made from natural ingredients and is federally exempt from needing a registration because the actives are safe for use around people and pets. Pest Rid releases an odor frogs don’t like and they’ll stay away from treated areas. Expect the granules to last 2-4 weeks.

BULLFROG REPELLENT SPRAY
For extra protection, get PEST RID SPRAY and spray over areas that have been treated with the Pest Rid Granules. Like the granules, Pest Rid spray is made from all natural ingredients and exempt from federal registration making it ideal for sensitive areas. Pest Rid spray will last 2-4 weeks when used with currently active problems. But once the bullfrogs move away, treatments will last 30 days or more.
