    Critter ramps

    So I am getting ready in the next few weeks to finally open my pool back up. Its been 50s/60s for the past week, which near Saint Louis is crazy this time of year.

    Anyhow last year I had to remove a dozen or so dead small animals. Which also included a ton of live spiders riding on corpses of the expired.

    So I have noticed there are these "critter" ramp things that hang off the side of your pool. Does anyone use them, and if so do they help?

    Thanks

    We used Frog Logs for the first two years. They seemed to work great. Then we tried to adopt a dog from a nearby horse ranch. He killed the frog logs! Dog is back at the horse ranch because that is where he belongs, he drove our donkeys crazy! Might be time to get some more. For some reason this year we haven't had nearly as many frogs and toads in the pool. Probably because it is very rainy this spring.

    Frog logs wouldn't help with rabbit, voles and such though right?

    It might be too small for a rabbit but we just saw picture of a mouse on one and he was alive. I bet they would work for a vole as they are about the same size.

    Their website says up to 1 lb animals, biggest thing they listed was a chipmunk.
