FrogLog FAQs

The chart below should be used as a guideline. If you have a problem with mammals (mice, chipmunks, moles, squirrels) the higher number of FrogLogs should be used. When a mammal falls into a pool, they can quickly become exhausted from swimming. The sooner they find an escape route the more able they are to climb up the FrogLog and escape.

Why do frogs and other animals enter swimming pools?

Most animals probably get into swimming pools by accident. Some animals may be trying to get a drink and accidentally and fall in. Amphibians may enter swimming pools due to their natural attraction to water or to breed. Toads and frogs may notice moths or other bugs on the water surface and enter the pool for a meal.
