Frogs in Ponds

OK guys, new on the board here so maybe it has been adressed 100 times before but humor me a bit. Then again we have been doing ponds for the last three years and have not had this one come up yet.

We just put in a pond for a customer, Her "problem" with the pond is that it attracts frogs! I am not kidding, She says they are keeping her awake at night and is making her husband transplant them to a pond down the road, the hilarious thing is I don't think we have ever seen a pond with this many frogs in it. My wife brings home frogs to put in our ponds and most customers are eccstatic when they have them talking about the sounds of nature and such. But this customer very much wants them Gone!

So, How do you keep frogs out of the pond?

Alan,

That is actually not as silly question as it sounds.
We (at Aquascape Designs) actually get this question a lot.
If this has just started, we usually tell the homeowner to give it a week and they will get used to it.

That is the easy way out. As far as we know, there is no good way to get rid of the frogs in the pond. You can get some pretty good size koi in there, and they may eat/chase the frogs out, but nothing fool proof.

Good luck and welcome to the forum,

Thanks for the quick response, I was going to call you guys and stumbled into this board.

We are installing Aquascapes products by the way, Working on the second week with this customer now, Hopefully when we have the pond Christening party she will say the frogs are "music to her ears"
