Gardening Frog Houses




If you are having slug problems then building a frog house would be a perfect solution for you. Building a frog house will attract frogs and then the frogs will eat the slugs, which will then decrease the amount of slugs in your garden!

Step 1: Finding Materials

The first step in making an awesome frog house is you need to find materials that frogs would like such as moss, bark, and pieces of wood. Make sure you also find materials that will make a good home and that you could easily prop up or build with, like some of the materials I gathered.

Step 2: Building Your Frog House

In order to attract frogs you are going to want to find a good spot to build your house. I put mine in the shade. Then gather your materials and start setting them up any way you want. Also it will help if you add a little bit of moisture to the frog house because frogs like moisture.

    Good and concise instructable, and nice frog house.
    Minor question: Do you know if you have snakes in the area? My concern is that this will double as a frog "hot-spot" where snakes can get them.
