Help, I can't sleep

Postby janz » Mon Jan 30, 2012 12:10 pm

Recently subdivided a block and had to install a soakage pit that drains into a low lying area creating a natural pond corner when we get rain. I planted the right sort of native plants in an effort to reduce water problem, but seems the frogs love it too and I think I now have a (multiplying) population of striped marsh frogs outside my bedroom window. This is not funny, I can't sleep. They're incredibly noisy. It's not a soothing croak, more like a cacaphony!! How to I get rid of them or relocate them?

They only croak during summer and the croaking will be finishing up soon

One of my striped marsh frogs (who lives in my bedroom), calls through the night. At first, I struggled sleeping with the noise but after a few nights I adjusted. There are also heaps of crinia signifiera outside my window and I quickly adjusted to them too. You can't really get rid of the frogs but hopefully you will quickly be able to zone them out:)
All the best!
