Default How do you keep the frogs away from your hot tub??

I keep getting these small frogs hanging out under my cover. When I lift the lid they jump in and then I’m chasing them around trying to catch them and get them back out. I’ve had this tub for years and never had an issue before 2020

I gave up. It's tough to beat biology.

It's #2 of the 10 plagues of Egypt and of 2020. We've already got pestilence and fires and even wild animals if you look at the riots. Maybe say a prayer?

If you are in FL lookup the invasive cuban treefrog. If you have those, you need to take them out. I found out accidently that wet and forget will get them out of anywhere!!

Get a properly fitting cover.
We have tree frogs that get into pretty much everything and everywhere, but I have never seen them near or on the hot tub....but we have a very good cover that fits really well.

Once I took the body out, the flies went away, and so did the frogs.

My wife hates, I mean, she HATES snakes.

We always get a couple around the house every year but its maybe 2 or 3, so no real big deal.

We put in a pool in spring, SNAKE MAGNET. Its insane!!

Do it right the first time: canned subsonic 300 blackout, night vision, and maybe an IR laser for good measure... they’re kind of small. I can have a TAC Team there by 0230, just say the word.
