Q: I have a large fish pond for my fish. I recently built a smaller pond on the other side of the yard. Now it has hundreds of tadpoles. Will I have this many frogs in my yard? How can I keep from being overrun?
A: Frogs are low on the food chain in your landscape. Birds, raccoons, dogs and snakes eat them regularly, thus limiting their numbers naturally. Enjoy the frogs’ croaking and peeping each night but note that the volume goes down gradually as the summer wears on.
