Frogs are an organic farm asset and help to control bug populations on the farm, you can see in the photo a cloud of tadpoles which is a huge population the frogs are going to be plentiful in a few weeks time.
Frogs eat are carnivorous meat eater so bugs are their favorite meal. Small to medium sized frogs eat insects such as but not limited to flies, mosquitoes, moths and dragonflies. Larger frogs will eat larger insects like grasshoppers and worms. Some large frogs will even eat small snakes, mice, baby tortoise, and even other smaller frogs!
Frogs are also an indicator species of the environment they are in. This means that if the air, water, or food source in a frog’s environment is polluted by something you are not aware of, the frogs will have symptoms like they will be prone to diseases, abnormalities in offspring and deaths are visual signs that let you know that something is wrong.
On Growing Healthy Farms we have a lot of crickets so we are glad we have a lot of frogs to match their numbers and keep them under control. We seem to hear two main crocks at night so we know that we definitely have at least two different frog on our farm.
