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!
How can I get rid of frogs without killing them? They don't bother me per se, but I do mind the feces they deposit all over my backyard, patio, and windowsills! I live in Palm Coast, Florida.
Make sure you don't have a bug problem. Get rid of the bugs and you will get rid of their food source.
Be sure you don't having standing water or stagnant water anywhere in your yard. That will attract frogs and mosquitoes. Don't leave exterior lights on at night.
If you live near a pond/water, they may be inevitable but they have natural remedies like coffee grounds, vinegar/water, etc.
