Hot Tub and Frogs
So does anyone have a suggestion to my problem? I have a hot tub, which is covered. Often when I lift the cover, I have one or more frogs sitting on the side of the hot tub. I assume they are attracted to the water and trying to figure out how to get in. 99% of the time, they don’t ever make it into the tub and I pick them up and take them to a remote corner of the yard away from the tub. But the other night a small green tree frog committed froggie-cide and I had to fish him out and give him a proper burial. While sitting in the tub that evening, one climbed up onto the edge of the tub and was hanging out there until I knocked him off. I love frogs. I used to raise them as a kid and I love the sound of frogs in the summer so I don’t want them out of the yard. I just want them away from the hot tub and want them to NOT commit froggie-cide. Any suggestions?
I’ve seen chemicals that you can spray in areas that will keep them at bay, but they don’t usually last in damp environments. And being next to a hot tub would definitely be a damp environment.
Thanks oh readers of my blog for any advice.
