Treefrogs

My property has tons of cute little green and grey treefrogs. On any night my windows on the South side of my house will have 50+ of them on the glass and all of them sucking down bugs like crazy.

The problem is they like my boat too. They get in under the cover and hang out. Their excrement leaves spots on the vinyl at times so they MUST go! Any ideas of how to make them not like the boat?

Have dogs?



Maybe even a cat could eat them? Basically just find an animal higher up on the food chain (could be yourself as well if you so wish, frog stew seems ok)

I've got a dog but he is already in charge of the bunnies, squirrels, and deer. One fall he picked off 15 squirrels, so he does his job well. He has sampled the froglegs but they pee in his mouth and he HATES that. Peacocks would not be an option.

What I need is a repellent to spray on the cover or on the outside of the boat because they have to cross the sides to get up under the cover. They love the area between the rub rail and the cover.

Play barry manilow 24/7. I'm pretty sure even frogs are repulsed by that.

Use 50/50 mixture of ammonia in a spray bottle and spray the areas that they like. The ammonia will keep them away. It works here in Florida.
