Fun And Entertainment with Garden Creatures

Love the sound of the mama frogs singing her babies to sleep in the spring and summer nights?  How about the bull frogs talking about what they did that day in late summer and fall evenings?  You must love having frogs around to eat a good portion of the mosquito population?  Yes? Well, have I got a deal for you…

DIY Frog Cottage Perfect for Bug Control and Sweet Summer Sounds

Build A Frog Cottage

First, find yourself some clay weeping tile.  Try a neighbour, a house in the neighborhood you have seen having exterior basement / drainage work done on, etc.  Most people end up replacing it with completely new weeping tile, and end up with a plethora of these clay cylinders.  Scavenge for them, you will find some, and this project will cost you zero dollars.

Old Clay Weeping Tile – Excellent Find!
Now that you have your weeping tile, you can decorate and paint them if you wish. Painting is not necessary, but who doesn’t like painting? Do it outdoors for endless free fun!

Now that your Frog Cottage is ready – place it wherever you have seen frogs, would like to see frogs, or whatever.  On the edge of a garden, or pond is ideal. 
Once you’re pleased with the location, add a puddle of water to the inside of the Frog Cottage.  Frog’s like to stay cool!
And watch, wait and listen.  Check back often to see if you have any guests move into your little cottages. Bring a camera and a note pad!
