Have frogs in pool in florida.  They will not go away. They appaently contracted with the squirrels to make holes in the screen.  Take a few to the lake every night but I think they just come back.  In the process of putting aluminum along botton of cage to discourage all critters from using pool.  Have gotten used to the frogs but would hate to find a cottonmouth sharing my morning swim. May you be in Heaven a half-hour before the devil knows your dead

Unfortunately, or perhaps not, there is no neighbour's pool.

Anyhow, thanks for your suggestion. Seems the little buggers have developed an immunity fo chlorine. Anyhow, with any luck they may at least keep the mosquito population down.

Beautiful Trixie!

please allow me a tiny formatting to your lovely haiku which demonstrates the essential aspects of seasonal contrast leading one to peaceful acceptance.

See the business opportunity: you could start a frog farm and sell legs. In gelée, with mint sauce, export them to Harrods, the sky is the limit. Soon you could be driving your very own frog green convertible Aston martin

You could make a pond and move them to it. Just don't put fish in it, or they will move back to the pool... Also when they are finished with the breeding season they will go of their own accord. They are useful little critters, they eat mosquito larvae.

If you lay real still on your left side cupping your right hand with a smear of crunchy peanut butter dead in the center of the palm, then dip your hand very slowy down into the water holding it under at about wrist level during the last quarter of the new moon and sing out-loud any Smokey Robinson tune...well my dear those unsuspecting little puppies will slide right into your hand ... then with a quick flick of your wrist toss 'em in your open mouth ......Ahhhh a such a delicious treat, better then smores. If you invite husband and kids you can clean a 5m x 10m pool in about 30 minutes .... SO NOW YOU HAVE quaility time with family, dinner AND a vermin free pool.......NOTE: some local falks SWEAR that creamy works just as well....good luck....
