The Frog Log
It's not easy being green, but install the Frog Log in your swimming pool and you'll at least make it easier for the hued dudes to climb back out when their poor decision-making skills, or gravity, entice them in. And the floating platform won't just save their lives, it will save you the hassle and grossness of fishing dead frogs out of your pool this summer.
The Frog Log points out that when a frog (or a mouse or other critter) falls into a pool, their instincts send them toward the pool walls, where they'll circle the edge in search of an escape. Once they bump into the Frog Log they'll be able to climb up its mesh edging onto the flat surface, and then up the mesh ramp to dry land.
The escape won't be as epic as this frog escape, but the effect - that the green ones will live to see another day! - will be the same.
The Frog Log expects its use will "nearly eliminate dealing with dead animals," plus reduce the bacteria infiltrating your pool from them. Setup requires no more than setting the platform in the water, with the weighted sandbag on the pool ledge to hold it in place. (You'll need to fill the Frog Log pouch with 1-1/2 to 2 cups of sand or pea gravel, or slide in a dive belt weight.)
Note: The Frog Log can assist small animals only, so be sure to keep that skimmer on hand for the neighbor's cats and the gators.
