Q & A with The Pond Guy

Q: My pond is filled with hundreds of frogs, really loud frogs. What is the best way to decrease the frog population?

- Diane of Metamora, IL

A: Ahhh, frogs. Its nice to have a few frogs here or there to jump in the pond as you walk by, but if the population gets over bearing, all of a sudden they become a huge annoyance. Frogs can be very loud, especially when there is an excessive amount of frogs present. If you would like to keep the frogs population down here are a couple of things you can do:
1.) Frogs love to hide in cattails or any other emergent weeds around a pond's shoreline. A clear shore will usually have a lesser population of frogs. Simply use the Avocet & Cide-Kick Combo to control shoreline emergent weeds and grasses.

2.) Bass - Simply adding bass to your pond is a great way to control excessive amounts of frogs. Bass will utilize the frogs as another food source.
