    How to repel the frogs?

    My pool water is so perfectly amazing, the frogs lounge in it at night; sometimes leaving eggs.

    The sweeper takes care of the eggs so it's not a huge problem although my wife is petrified of frogs.

    Well dang. Thought I'd win a prize with that answer!

    You know what I'd do right? I'd be the one out there with the pellet gun target practicing. But that's just me.

    I'm a pretty good shot with my Daisy, but not sure I'm willing to risk my brand new coping.

    Oh well, frogs eat bugs. I suppose it is time for me to accept our symbiotic relationship.

    It's hopeless. Fill in your pool or get used to the frogs. I have a 4 year old girl that likes to catch them. After she has been in the pool the frogs stay away for a few days. But they do come back.
