Repelling frogs requires draining water sources, controlling their food sources, removing shelter and applying repellent where needed. Netting is also used as a means of repelling frogs.Know More
Frogs are attracted to water sources where they can settle. They commonly make outdoor pools and other standing water sources their homes. Covering or draining these areas discourages them and forces them to seek a new home in another area.
Keeping the lawn and surrounding foliage mowed and maintained prevents frogs from finding adequate shelter. Filling up any large holes is important, as they may attempt to create new homes in them. By removing their potential shelter, the frogs have no choice but to find new foliage for safety.
Controlling or repelling frogs' food sources is also an effective strategy. Frogs feed mainly on flies such as mosquitoes, so it is important to rid the area of these insects. Securely covering garbage containers and draining any standing water sources helps reduce the number of insects. Light repellent candles and place fly traps where flies and mosquitoes are found in abundance to ward them off and even kill them. Turning off any lights at night also reduces the number of flies in the area.
Use snake repellent to further discourage frogs from entering the undesired area, as they are sensitive to its odor.
If these methods of repelling the frogs prove inadequate, netting should be placed around the area in which they are intruding to help keep them out.Learn more about Frogs
