 Some of the effective and easiest ways are as follows:

1. Pesticides Can Do the Job

The First thing we can do is cut the food source and reduce the attraction of the frogs from the backyard or garden, so the food and attraction here refer to small insects and pests that present in the garden and backyards very commonly.

2. Coffee Grounds Can Be Effective

Pesticides Can Do the Job

The best recycling way to make frogs go away from your backyards and gardens can be the sprinkling of used coffee grounds on the grass and frog affected area or on the area where frogs may come.

The reason behind this is frogs will not like the coffee grounds to be stuck in their legs which prevent them from going to the area where it is sprinkled as their legs are sticky naturally, and coffee grounds stuck in their legs makes them unable to move properly that is the reason why they will surely avoid these areas where coffee is sprinkled.

3. Snake Repellent Works for Frogs

Applying snake repellent works not only for snakes but also for the frogs; with the odor of the snake repellent spray, the frogs try to avoid the area as they think there is a snake in that area which makes a life threat to them.

Also, the bad odor and sometimes stuck with the frog’s body if they get contact with the repellent and it makes them feel irritating, so they left the area where the repellent is sprayed, so spraying snake repellent in your backyard and garden can make your place free from snakes as well as frogs.

4. Vinegar Water Solution

Mixing vinegar and water in equal quantity and then spraying the solution in the affected area will kill all the pests and insects. The eggs of frogs which exist will not grow, and the new frogs will not take birth, so this solution will do the 2 things in one effort, cutting down the food source of the frog and stopping the frogs from reproducing and multiplying their population.

Applying vinegar-water solution once a week will make frogs and small insects vanish from your backyard and garden.

5. Saltwater Spraying

Vinegar solutions and saltwater solutions act almost the same as vinegar. The saltwater also kills the pest and the small insects to cut off the frogs’ food source, and the eggs of the frogs won’t grow and hatch in the saltwater, so, like vinegar, it also restricts frogs to multiply their population. Still, saltwater can also be harmful to the plants and trees in your backyard and garden, so if one should use salt water instead of vinegar, he /she should not spray it near or on the plants.

6.  Net for Frog Catching

The last & the only manual way to keep frogs away from the backyard and gardens is to catch them with the help of a net and release them somewhere far from your place. This act will let the frog unaffected and uninjured if you release them.

There are many nets available in the market and online stores that can help catch the frogs. If you caught the frogs and if it is poisonous, you should avoid touching their bare hands.

There are lots of human ways you can kill them like you can keep them in a container and can freeze them, or you can normally wrap the container, and lack of oxygen will slowly kill the frogs.

So, it is totally individual’s choice of releasing the frog or killing it humanly both the ways will help in the case.
