Put fake snakes in your pool. Frogs hate snakes, and are easily fooled. Try to find ones that float.

We've got thousands of tree frog tadpoles too, we scooped them out of the pool into coolers, any ideas on how to keep them alive until they get feet? We really don't want to kill them all!

I think I would try calling the pool store. Maybe try googling the question.. I have a pool too and had tons of tadpoles this year but managed to get rid of all them before they turned into frogs. They do love the water though I've gotten several out over the years.
I just googled your question and this is one answer I found.
Frogs love being around the water, especially during their mating season. However, they can be pretty noisy. Part of the reason that they are attractive to water is that they mate and give birth in the water. They normally do not reproduce in swimming pools due to the chlorine levels, but they do not know the difference. The best way to get rid of them is to enclose the swimming pool, ie by a gate, cover etc so that they will not be able to get in. Another alternative is to spray 'saltwater' or rock salt around the perimeter of the pool. The frogs hate salt because it hurts their feet. However, be careful not to put saltwater or salt rock around your plants; it may kill most plants.
Hum interesting... another reason I'm glad I switched to pool salt.. My problem with tadpoles was before I started my pool up. I haven't noticed any since i started my salt water system.. guess they really don't like salt so I'd try this.
The salt works really well I saw the post about it on here and tried it myself.No more frogs. You can buy the 50lb bag at Tractor Supply for $5.49 just pour around perimeter of the pool.

This might be mean but I had had it with these frogs keeping me up at night. Plus attracting snakes to my yard. So last night I took a BB rifle put pellets in it not BB's and killed the big male. He didn't feel a thing I didn't hear one frog last night. I'm hoping the females will hear another male calling them and move on. I had tried catching him for about a week with no luck. Hope this helps

I know this might sound strange but put salt in your pool and keep people our for a few weeks til salt is out of pool or you cna fish the frogs out and put salt around your pool &#9786;

<quoted text>okay cut the trees down above pool, and take the lily pads out of pool. if that fails try kerosene, about 7 gallons for a full size pool. If that fails stop paying the rent, get evicted, and then you will haveta move, problem gone.

Omg! I feel your pain! I bought a house last year and during the summer i began hearing the most annoying sound of tree frogs calling...i would find them at night hanging in my pool usually about 2-3. Next morning my pool would be infested with black eggs that they just laid. Disgusting!!!!!!! Inwould have to shock it just to make sure it was clean and vacuum it all up. Sadly, theres no chemical, ultrasonic sound waves that will stip them, however...whoever mentioned the salt water system could be right. I had several people tell me that same thing so next year i may be changing mine cause i cannot exert myself every night vaccuming frog eggs and spending excessive money on mire chlorine! Good Luck!
