Invasion of Frogs

Asked March 23, 2017, 12:13 PM EDT

We recently opened our sump pump to daylight for water drainage issues. Since then we have had an invasion of frogs in our sump pump. Even after placing screens on both ends of the pipes, they are reappearing in our sump. This is a problem especially if they get caught in the pump mechanism. What do you suggest? The pest companies don't deal with them and neither do the lawn people!

Sounds like the frogs are getting in somewhere other than the pipes. You'll have to figure out how/where they are coming in and block them. Frogs are very beneficial as natural insect control in Maryland.
