    Frog eggs?

    We've had 4 days of rain in Austin. These weren't here previously. Frog eggs?

    At least they are all clumped together so should be easy.

    You could incubate them and see, but if they're frogs, release them FAR from your pool!!! Some retention pond that breed mosquitoes?

    There are several ponds around here. I'll stick them in a bucket and see what happens first.

    Re: Frog eggs?

    I had to laugh at this . Two days ago I found exactly the same thing atached to my robot. As I went to empty the skimmer I found the culprit still happily moving around and promptly relocated her


    IG plaster pools built in 1985 (?): 16k(?) gallons lap pool (62'x8') connected by a spillover to 17k(?) gallons squarish pool (22.5'x18'). DE filters Pentair NS-48(x2), polaris 280 (non-functioning). Inline chlorinator [removed!] -> Circupool Si60 SWCG [Newly self installed March 2016!]. Recently acquired dolphin nautilus+ [Summer 2015]. Still figuring out what else I have and how things work.

    Thanks for verifying. As of today, they have all formed tails but still stuck in one blob (in a bucket). There is a second batch I pulled out today. Going to release in a local pond soon. The frog is sitting on the fountain rocks basking in the sun.

    I found a dead rat yesterday was gross. This is equally as bad

    The dead rat is a LOT worse than frog eggs. At least the will grow to be frogs that eat bugs.

    Re: Frog eggs?

    I've fished scads of frog eggs out of our pool in the last two days, sometimes in big clumps and sometimes in little ones scattered all over the pool. Grrr! I wish there was a way to keep the frogs out of the pool. They're in there every night since the water warmed back up again; I've counted as many as six at one time. They'll hurriedly hop out (usually) if we want to swim but the egg laying... I really hope the season for it is limited.
