IF they were the right kind of frogs I could help ya out.... But if their behind the shutters they aren't the correct type...... A good black snake around the house is what you really need........

It's crazy how loud 20 head of spring frogs can get when they all start sounding of at 2 in the morning. Without killing them there's no way to run them off. Their coming to the light for the bugs. Be sure to turn off all lights when you go to bed. Let them go over to you neighbors lights and feed for awhile. There are somethings you can spray to clean them out.never could bring myself to do it. Only last during the summer months. I kind of got use to it after awhile.

I know exactly what you are going through. What was stated about the lights is true to a degree, but mine would start up and it would be pitch black dark. There is a insect perimeter home defense spray you can get at home depot / lowes / wal-mart that I sprayed around my house and behind the shutters. It has helped tremendously. It cut off the food source for the frogs and I think it may be a bit if an irritant to them also. I am fortunate enough to have some corn snakes in the yard that help some. Them frogs can make one hell of a racket.

You may want to look into a ultrasound unit. They work great for mice and have different settings for other varmints.

I hear your pain! Ours wake up at 4:15 every morning. It took us about three days to finally figure out what the noise was....it sounds like a 400lb duck under the bed..
We sent the boys (7 and 9) out every day for about a week or so to "get the frogs" and they finally went away. Now we just get woken up by the shutters slamming in the breeze because the kids dont put the latch back....

Down here, "frogs" is slang for people from north of the border who are usually old and drive motor homes. Not all of them are cheap, but a lot are. If they bother to leave a tip it is well under 10% (excuse - in Quebec we do not tip) and they also steal all the packets of Sweet-N-Low off the table.

I have a few friends who work, or have worked, in the service industry.
