How do you prevent frogs from drowning in in-ground swimming pools?
You really can't. You can put a "skamper ramp" on your pool to help them get out but its hit or miss they'll see it.
There is a an ingenious lightweight, net device called Critter Guard that provides a ladder for frogs and other animals to use to climb out of a pool. Visit the Critter Guard Web site at or at Critterguard.net for Purchases and additional information.

Although frogs in your pool are inconvenient, there is no healthrisk due to the pool chemicals. You just remove the drowned frogs. You should check your yard for standing wat…er where the eggs canhatch and tadpoles mature. If you do not have this, then the frogsare migrating toward your pool for some reason. If you leave thelights on, that attracts bugs and the frogs come for the picnic.Clear out any weeds and debris in your yard. Some believe usingammonia based fertilizer is a deterrent. Also, a wooden or blockfence will prevent frogs from coming into the area. (MORE)
Answer . have a pool above the ground and tell the kids to not play with kids around the pool you can jump into the pool and look at them There is a solution! A new inventi…on that allows frogs to escape from dying in in-ground pools. It is called the Critter Skimmer, and it is a ramp that is attached to the skimmer cover that allows them to crawl out of the pool. It really works. All in-ground pools are designed to push everything into the skimmer, so the frogs will always find their way out. Plus Don't be near a river. Unless it is a above ground pool that you can take down Just replace your existing skimmer cover with the critter skimmer and no more dead frogs! It's amazing. I haven't seen a dead frog in my pool since. go to www.critterskimmer.com Another option is to use a FrogLog (www.froglog.us) which is a ramp for all kinds of small animals. It works as advertised. The FrogLog is not hidden inside the skimmer so mammals that need to get out quickly before drowning can see the escape route. Frogs and other animals with porous skin need to get out of chlorinated or salt water quickly too. The FrogLog allows for a quick escape. Multiple FroLogs can be used in larger pools. The two devices can also be used together. (MORE)
Squirrel swimming lessons :) but really the majority of animals are able to swim by instinct. If this has happened a lot in your pool I would suggest getting a pool cover. The…y have several different sizes to choose from. (MORE)
