    I’ve been trying! We had 2 pool companies come out. Both said we don’t have to drain, just needs lots of chemicals. So I was thankful to see a bunch start to transform. Ive been scooping out the others and putting them in a tank on my deck. Will be transporting them to a new home this weekend :)

    Nice Job, Have you seen any adult frogs around ? I usually get some frogs in my turtle pond but haven't seen one yet this year. I think they don't need my little pond because of all the rain we've had this spring.

    Just some grays. But this is the first spring in our new house, so I’m not sure what’s common around here yet.

    Do you need a frog fix? Maybe I can help! : )
    I LOVE that these little frogs are getting relocated instead of destroyed! Awesome!
