Frogs and noise complaints.

So as we all know, frogs are a noisy bunch. They have the power to drive us crazy and cause sleep deprivation for some, but did you know that they have many benefits as well? Here are just a few reasons why we should appreciate the noisy buggers a little bit more.

*They act as a free intruder detection system. Frogs are only noisy when they feel safe so as soon as there is something larger then them that approaches their area, within a 5m radius, their croaking stops. This is a very good warning for us to know that something is not right and that there is possibly something big around.

*Frogs keep the local mosquito populations down and in check as young frogs feed on the young mosquitoes that hatch from the rivers and ponds near our homes.

*Frogs act as an important link in the food chain and are a vital food source to many small mammals and the bigger aquatic bird species such as Herons.

So although they may be a pain to some, remember that we as humans have impacted on their natural environment and have invaded what was once theirs. They have adapted to change and have now resorted to inhabit our outside ponds and other water sources that we have at our homes, purely out of instinct,

It is what they have been doing for thousands of years and will continue to do for thousands more. So next time we feel the need to complain about them, just remember that they are a great alarm system to have around and we need to respect that if we eradicate them, we eradicate a vital link in the ecosystem.
