      how do you get rid of a tree frog?

      its chirping going right through me:mad:

      i have already found 5 of the little buggers ... but one little @#$#@$*@# i simply can not find!! :mad: the poor vine that the frog is in... has been sprayed down to almost point of dripping wet of fly spray / ant spray / bug spray, in attempt to drive the frog out of the vine and away...

      any suggestions?

      Hmmmmm.
      If you've been spraying that vine that much the frog
      should croak in 24 hours...

      Have you tried going out at night with a flashlight and
      spotlighting the frog?

      Boggen, you must have been raised in the city and don't appreciate the sounds that Mother Nature has provided you. I suggest that you move closer to the interstate to get a good nights sleep.

      Get ear plugs?

      Seriously, I try to attract and keep tree frogs. They are cute, eat bugs, and I don't mind the chirping.

      I like them too. Sometime the noise is deafening....there are dozens and dozens of them around here....but I love hearing their song. I like sitting out by the pond at night and listening to all the different frog sounds.

      We have tons of tree frogs in my yard! Sometimes I can't hear myself think but I love them. I've taken some really good pictures... I'll post one later.

      Frogs are the sign on a healthy ecosystem. Sorry you killed it.

      I like them and am thrilled to have them.

      intresting enough... yestarday, a gate put up its last fight. i went to step over it like normal, and foot caught the top edge:mad: and i went crashing down. after hassling around picking up the pieces of the gate and taping up me gash going across half me behind. she wanted to go out. when she went to take a step up on the stairs she acted like she fell she's a cuite

      and yes i live on a farm and use to all sort of things. its just when the little buggers are right at your bed room window and trying to get some rest.:mad:
