How do you get rid of frogs?

Frogs are attracted to insects, light that attracts insects, and water. One good thing is they are eating the insects but turning off outdoor lights will help them to go elsewhere.
Also if there is any open water nearby or ponds in your yard that is also attracting them. Because frogs are dying off at an alarming rate, I'd hate to see you killing them, we will be in real trouble without them. They are great for insect control.
Look around and see if there is anything you can do to make you house less attractive to them.

PLESE do not kill any frogs! With west nile virus and other mosquito borne illness at a rise, and a severe decline to the number of frogs, we need to keep the ones that we have! They eat the "bad bugs" in our gardens and lawns.
are they frogs or toads? i've heard that having both in your yard is a sign of a healthy lawn. plus, they eat lots of bugs every day.
curious, why do you want to get rid of frogs? i try to get MORE in my yard! they eat mosquitos.
Almost poison my dog
Why in the world would you want to get rid of these natural insect eaters ? Keep them, and you will be bug free !
My dog r obsessed w/frogs 24/7, that all they want to do every night is hunt frogs totally obcessed
Not true I'm trying to get rid of them too there anoring and still have mosqitos
Let HIS People GO! it worked for Pharoah! LOL
Hello, has anyone ever seen a pastel stucco house where frogs and toads love to live and eat mosquitos and other bugs? Guess not or no one would ask "why would you want to get rid of them"?
FROG POOP STAINS, STINKS AND IS SO ------- ATTRACTIVE - LOVE THOSE DARLING AMPHIBIANS!
Toads are nasty and they make a disgusting mess on the patio and around the house. I'm tired of cleaning up after them!
A frog fell out of my kitchen recessed light and landed on my shoulder. Freaked me out. My home is only 4 years old and I have frogs in the
attic. My landscape company keeps the palm trees trimmed back. Had roof vents closed off. I think frogs are good outside but not in my attic, or falling out of the recessed lighting. How do I rid my attic of these frogs?
Terminix, my pest control company said "we don't do frogs"
Any suggestions or help out there?
I have the same type of frog problem since Hurricane Charlie blew through. They make horrible messes on my windows and the front porch. One evening I came home late and there were over 40 frogs on my garage door. I couldn't get out of my car because those sneaky little buggers NEVER jump the way you expect, and always land on ME! YUCK.
I turned off my outside lights over a year ago to get them to go away, but some of the little die-hards are persistent, I've ordered poison hemlock to grow in a pot on my front porch to see if that will take care of the stubborn survivors.
I can't see why they are in your attic though unless there is a moisture problem there that you should take care of right away.
I FEEL YOUR PAIN. WE JUST MOVED INTO A HOME WITH A SMALL INGROUND POOL AND EACH AND EVERY EVENING AT LEAST 3 OR 4 FROGS JUMP IN FOR A SWIM AND ARE FOUND DEAD IN THE MORNING. I KNOW FROGS ARE GOOD AND WANT TO KEEP THEM AROUND FOR BUG EATERS, BUT AM AT A LOSS AS TO WHAT TO DO TO KEEP THEM OUT OF OUR POOL. ANY SUGGETIONS WOULD BE WELCOME. THANKS.
Help. I need a frog repellent. I understand they eat insects. But the ones near my apt jump down into my patio area and then can't jump high enough to set themselves free. Twice a day I am cleaning off frogs from my patio. Will they get the hint if I stop rescuing them?
My dog keeps getting a hold of them and it's gross
I have a Bad Problem with these little creatures in my yard at night. It sounds like there are hundreds of them Croaking! And they do it almost ALL night! I need a way to get rid of them. Any suggestions? Thanks
Eating bugs is great and all but I just had my dog sniff a huge one. the foaming of the mouth has subsided. Just found frog repellent on the net: I will be buying!
As to why anyone would want to get rid of frogs, if you had baby Koi fish in your pond you would understand. Frogs are devastating to baby fish ( they eat fish that are up to 6 inches long). They have eaten many of my babies, and I, too, would like to know the best way to repel them... Sue in OR
I work for a pest control company on Colombia. We use a special preparation based on creosote to repel snakes, and it seems to work fine with frogs too. In Colombia, frogs and snakes are protected species, so we use mechanisms that while they keep frogs and snakes away they cause no harm since the substance is applied inside a special container (1/2" PVC pipe with small holes, mounted on brackets placed on the ground) that lets the smell out but does not allow contact of any animal with the substance (it can be very toxic). We use it successfully to keep frogs and snakes away in many of our industrial clients facilities.
