My backyard inground pool (saltwater system) is attracting frogs. They are laying eggs in my skimmer and the smell is too much, not to mention the noise they make all night long, and the mess on my pool surroundings. Any suggestions?

Don't understand how you have frogs in a salt water pool system. Frogs are fresh water animals. Frogs do not smell. If your skimmer is somehow fresh water and frogs are laying eggs to multiply, feel blessed as they are great bug eaters. Rid the frogs and suffer with bugs. Think of their sounds as music. I would love to have them. Please don't hurt them.

There is no reason this would be happening other than either the skimmer is not being cleaned out properly or it needs to be replaced.

Sorry, I dont have an answer but sympathize with your problem. I have a chlorine, above ground pool, and many nights tree frogs line the inside of the walls and lay eggs. There will be 7-10 a night.


Its such a mess to have to clean frog eggs out of the pool. Ive looked for answers as well but havent found much besides scooping them out with net. My daughter will sometimes collect and relocate the frogs but theres always more.

We have the same problem. The only solution I found was to keep the pool running at night. They don't lay eggs if the water is moving.
