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.
