    Default How do I get rid of frogs in the toilet??

    HELP!!! I have a frog infestation!! At first it was funny " hey look we have a frog on our toilet" but It is not at all anymore!!
    We've tried relocating them but nup they come back, they aren't hopping in from outside they are coming up through the toilet. There is heaps in there, my hubby counted 6 the other night and they party in there they poo everywhere and the water has turned green in the toilet as it doesn't get flushed because my 3 yr old refuses to use it. So that toilet is basically condemned!! Now the new problem is we found one in our other toilet and if my 3 yr old sees a frog in that toilet she will not use it and then we will have a big problem.

    Sooooo anyone know what we can do to get rid of them?????I have just googled and it suggested a box of rock salt once a month for a few months will send them away and I'll be trying that as soon as I can. Anyone had this problem and successfully got rid of them??

    Do you leave the seat down all of the time?
    Also be wary of snakes if you have them around as they love to eat frogs and will come looking for them.
    If they are coming up thru your toilet then they would be in the septic tank I would presume so maybe a pump out of that to get rid of some of the water would work. Or if salt works a salt block (like what you get from cattle feed shops ) in your cistern would help so its salty everytime it flushes.
    Good luck , even our cats couldn't get rid of the frogs all we would hear was the screaming everytime one was caught its a horrible noise.

    Wow, frogs in ur toilet!

    I have no advice. We don't have those problems here.

    I was just amazed that they would find their way from the septic tank to your toilet!!!

    Hope u get it sorted soon. Your poor daughter!

    Just a question
    do you have a septic tank on your property or do you live in town??
    if you live in town i would be calling your shire and if you live on property (own septic tank) i would be calling some people to remove the waste in the tank, my parents have a takn as they live on a farm they get their tank emptied every few years!! I hope this helps....

    Yep, get your septic emptied. It's probably too high if they're moving between there and the toilet.

    We used to have a resident frog in the loo at school. Funnily enough it was just one frog and it only liked ONE of the toilets. I remember that it was there for AGES. Can't remember how they got rid of it, but people on farms near us just left them and went over them

    Thanks for all the replies! : ) I should of mentioned we live in town so we don't have a septic tank, so thanks for the suggestion of speaking to the council. Also the salt block in the cistern sounds like a great idea if the rock salt works!! It just isn't possible to live with them anymore if it was just one and maybe just in my toilet (even though I have had a frog hit me on the bum whilst sitting on the loo at a previous house but that frog hopped into the toilet from outside) but my 3 yr old will def not just use the toilet, every time we go to someone's house she asks is there a frog in their toilet and I say no bit she always has a look and is wary to go. Aghh I just wish they would disappear tomorrow!
