    Default Do you get frogs in your bathroom?

    Do you have frogs in your bathroom? if yes, do you take them outside, leave them or flush (if in the toilet)?

    This important topic has been prompted by one of the little beggars hopping onto the front of the seat as I was sitting down. Thankfully I heaved my bum backwards before anything went squish. I think he's the same frog I saw peering up at me as I went to flush yesterday. I didn't rescue him. I figure he gets into those situations, he can get himself out.

    We used to in our old place. They actually come from the vent pipe, they climb down (the pipe that comes out the roof , it's for gases) then swim up the u bend. If you're getting frogs in the toilet it's because you need new fine mesh over that pipe to stop them.

    Happy2be3 - that might be how normal people get them, but we're special! We're living in a shed while we build our hous, and our ablution block walls don't reach all the way to the ceiling.
    You should see the wildlife that gets involved in our daily lives. Best one ever was dp looking up while he rinsed his face, and making eye contact with the snake wrapped around the shower rose!

    I love frogs. They're adorable. Some are also protected so you've got to be careful about how you deal with them.

    I've never found them in our toilet as an adult, but we occasionally get green tree frogs in our yard, in our letterbox and we've also found one hiding in the part where your boot meets the side of your car. Lol.

    If you do handle them, make sure your hands are wet, and if it's the day, put them somewhere shady. Probably best to leave them alone and avoid using chemical toilet products, but otherwise move them outside at night if you can so they can feed and relocate during their normal waking hours.

    We regularly get them in the house - toilet and shower every few days and random places around the rest of the house less frequently. We take them outside and put them somewhere safe and appropriate for them (moist, shady etc).

    Yes!
    We always get them inside at night!
    Dh just scoops them up with wet hands and plonks them outside.
    I've found that turning the outside light on attracts all the bugs and the bugs attract the frogs and keeps them outside
    Every night we have at least 25 itty bitty frogs out there now

    Yep all the time. We live in a shed too. The worst snake (hmm that hard as there has been quite a few) was the one in the loo. You go sit down and look down
