Based on what I have read about SAB Extreme, it should have actually made conditions BETTER for any frogs (and fish) you may have had. I am wondering if any new predators may have moved into the area, such as raccoons, foxes, hawks, owls, egrets, herons, snakes, alligators, cats, dogs, Cajuns, or French gourmands. There has been a fungus that has been decimating amphibian populations lately, and the recent drought has also stressed existing populations. If you live in the south central to south eastern US, you should start to see some recovery of frog populations as we make up for rain lost over the past few years. The creek in my back yard has been dry for the past two years, and with the recent abundance of rain, I have heard many tree frogs and bullfrogs lately.

What is a Ecosystem?


a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
  • (in general use) a complex network or interconnected system."Silicon Valley's entrepreneurial ecosystem"

    In other words, when you walk in to a forest and see a pond with frogs and fish, this is an ecosystem. The water feeds the trees, the trees feed insects, the insects feed fish and frogs. It is a balanced system of connected organisms.

What do forgs eat


see for example http://www.ehow.com/about_6308489_frogs_-diet.html
also
http://www.frog-life-cycle.com/what-frogs-eat.html
and
http://www.buzzle.com/articles/what-do-frogs-eat.html

Adult frogs are carnivorous; most common species eat insects, and other small creatures commensurate with their size (depends on species)

Frogs can absorb water through their skin (except some species). They can also lose water that way. So, I suppose that means that they do not have to drink in the conventional sense, but need to be near water (they could dry out !). "frogs don't 'drink' water, at least not the way we do! Frogs absorb water through their skin. Some species of frogs have a special patch on their bellies, which absorbs water" - from http://www.indiaparenting.com/kidcentric/319_2703/all-about-frogs.html
They do not drink fruit juice, milk, beer, tea or coffee !

How to eliminate frogs from my yard


Part 1 of 3: Identifying the Frogs

Identify the frog species you're dealing with. Not only will this information help you get rid of the frogs (different species respond to different methods) but it will also ensure that you're not doing something illegal, as some species of frogs are protected by law. Invasive frogs that are a nuisance to both people and local ecology include:

• Bullfrogs outside of their native environment in eastern North America. They compete with native frogs, eat native frogs, and chytridiomycosis, an infectious disease that has led to the extinction of 100 frog species. [1]

• Cane toads outside of their native environment in Central and South America. While not a frog, many people reading this article will be dealing with these amphibians. They are especially rampant in Australia.

• Cuban tree frogs outside of their native habitat in Cuba. These are a big nuisance in Florida, where they even cause power outages.[2]

• Coqui frogs outside of their native environment in Puerto Rico.

Check the laws in your area. In many parts of the world, it's illegal to kill non-invasive species, but people are encouraged to manage invasive species (and in some cases it's illegal to release an invasive frog once you've caught it).


Part 2 of 3: Change the Environment

1) Drain any standing water. Frogs are attracted to moisture, so removing sources of water from your yard will cause most frogs to lose interest.

• You can rent a pump to get rid of most water sources.

• Birdbaths, swampy areas, bowls of water, and ponds are just a few examples of water sources that attract frogs.

• Removing sources of stagnant water will also drive away mosquitoes and other insects that frogs feed on, making the area even less appealing.

• If the water source in your yard is something you want to keep, like an artificial pond, try draining it and leaving the pond empty for a week. Most of the frog population should lose interest in this time and move on.

• Alternatively, add a filter or running fountain to your pond. This will cause the water to circulate, thereby eliminating most mosquitoes and other insects. The frogs will still be attracted to the water, but with a decrease in food supply, many may still end up moving on.


2) Trim your weeds. Tall grass, shrubs, or other bushy plants make the perfect hiding place for frogs. Clearing these elements away forces the frogs to be exposed, which is a condition they generally try to avoid.
• Tall plants around a water source is especially troublesome. If you want to maintain tall or bushy plants somewhere in your yard, position them as far away from any water source as possible.

3) Clear away any debris. Like tall grass, clutter in your yard serves as an excellent hiding place for frogs. Removing it will chase many frogs away.
• Remove empty pots, old lumber, piles of wood chips, or any other structure that may create a damp, dark place for frogs to hide.

4) Turn off outside lighting.[3] Light attracts insects, and insects attract frogs. Turning off your outdoor lights at night will reduce both insect and frog populations.
• Shut off garden lights and porch lights. Close the drapes and curtains in your house to reduce the amount of light filtering out from inside.

5) Keep pet food inside the house. While somewhat uncommon, frogs do occasionally steal dog food or cat food. Feed your pets inside or keep the dish inside when the dog or cat is not eating.

6) Kill the insects. Since flies, mosquitoes, and other insects are the primary food source for frogs, killing the bugs will deter frogs from coming to your yard.
• Use a bug zapper. Place the bug zapper on your porch to attract and kill all manner of flying insects.
• Spray organic insecticides. Many chemical insecticides will also kill the frogs, but most organic insecticides do not have that effect.

7) Set up fencing. Surround your property or pond with mesh netting or plastic fencing.
• Do not use chicken wire or chain-link fencing, since frogs can easily slip through these types of fences.
• Make sure that the fencing starts at ground level and stands tall. Frogs can leap a considerable height, so a standard-size fence will work better than a purposefully low one.
• Take precautions to keep the fence stable. Bury the support posts 1 foot (30.5 cm) underground, at minimum, and bury a portion of the fencing material beneath the ground, too.


Part 3 of 3: Physical Removal

1) Catch the frogs with a net. Use a butterfly net or another type of long-handled, thinly-meshed net to capture the frogs one by one.
• If you have an abundance of frogs, you may need to enlist the help of others to accomplish this task.
• Relocate the frogs. After catching the frogs, consider relocating them to a nearby pond or stream. When relocating frogs, however, it is important to introduce the frogs to an area that the breed or species can be naturally found in. Otherwise, you can upset the ecological balance of that habitat.
• Freeze the frogs to death.[4] If it is impossible to relocate the frogs, you can kill them humanely by freezing them. Place the frogs in a sealable container with air holes punched through the lid. Store this container in the refrigerator overnight. The frogs will ease into a coma-like state. The following day, move the container to the freezer and store the frogs there for 48 to 72 hours. Temperatures this cold should kill them.

2) Gather and destroy the tadpoles. Use a standard aquarium fish net to scoop up any tadpoles in your pond or other water source. Lay the tadpoles out in the sun for a day or so. The dry heat should kill them.
• You can lay the captured tadpoles out on the cement or lawn, but the drier to surface, the quicker the extermination should be.
• Alternatively, you could also bury the captured tadpoles underground. This, too, should kill them.

3) Set traps indoors. If the frogs have found their way indoors, set up standard mouse traps to kill them.
• Place these traps around any opening that leads from the outside to the inside, such as garage doors, basement windows and vents.

4) Use chemicals and organic sprays only as a last resort. While there are chemical pest control measures you can take to get rid of the frogs in your yard, these options often torment or kill the frogs slowly and should be avoided unless no other option has proven effective. When possible, use repelling measures rather than lethal ones.
• Try snake repellent.[5] Spraying snake repellent around the perimeter of your yard is often an effective repellent against frogs. In fact, snake repellent is usually about as effective at getting rid of frogs as it is at getting rid of snakes.
• Use herbicide. Studies suggest that certain weed killers chemically alter male frogs, stripping away their ability to reproduce.[6] As a result, spraying these herbicides in areas where frogs gather can greatly reduce future frog populations.
• Spray the frogs with citric acid. Mix 1.3 lb (600 g) dry citric acid with 1 gallon (4 liters) of water in a large spray bottle.[7] Spray the solution directly on the frogs. It should kill them almost immediately.
• Spread salt. If you do not have any plants near your pond, spread a little salt around the perimeter. Salt will burn the toes of the frogs, deterring them from the area. Note that salt will destroy plants, however.
• Spritz the frogs with caffeine. Concentrated caffeine will kill frogs by causing them to have heart attacks, but you can spread coffee grounds around the areas where frogs gather to deter them without killing them off. It will cause the frogs discomfort, but will not likely kill them.

5) Hire an exterminator. If you are uncertain about how to remove the frogs or are unsuccessful in your efforts, hire a professional.

How do i get rid of frogs from my koi pond


Empty the pond for a week, keep the KOI n an alternative location.

The frogs will move on for the most part.

Second add a filter and a pump to the pond, this will eliminate and Mosquitoes and other such food source from there Appeal to the pond

Third, any tall grass should also be removed.

If you can't move the fish for a week, try fencing with a mesh netting around the pond, but make sure it is dug into the ground and at least 2 feet high, 3 would be better.

Also Snake repellant keep frogs at bay as well, but keep it far away from the Koi!!!

Hibernation


Some frogs hibernate under the mud (but don't try to dig 'em up!), or they may have moved to a better hibernation spot near a pond or other wet area. For more info, see:

24HR working pump question


Utility Pumps: Utility pumps draw water through openings that screen out debris. When placing one into a pond, use a pump sock or other enclosure to reduce the amount of cleaning needed. If you use a pump sock, be aware that sock-like screening can cause a dry pump situation. Solids Pumps: These pumps draw water through a large opening and pump small debris through without clogging. For this reason, they can be placed into a pond without prefilters. Note, however, that this type is not safe for ponds with fish, frogs or other aquatic animals
