    We have a septic tank. We also have frogs that come up the toilet of one bathroom. We have lived in our house for 11 years and only one toilet has frogs. They visit more often lately. What do I do? Why can they come into my home via the toilet and how do I stop it? It really freaked my guest last week.

    The line going out to your tank must be broken or there is a clean out with a missing cap. I don't think they are coming in by way of the tank its self. There must be an opening somewhere.

    throw a handful "mothballs" down the toilets....

    they wont hurt the septic


    and they will either kill off the

    frogs or chase over to your neighbors....

    I had a large copperhead snake (mildly poisonous) in my basement from a floor drain thet went to daylight with no screen.

    It was interesting going down in the basement and finding it comming up the stairs. Probably intended to come under the upstairs door where the light was shining in. Possibly looking for frogs in my iiolets. Zero chance of catching it in all the basement junk so I had to shoot it. Beautiful snake.

    Eat a heavy diet of corn. They attract to light colored floaters

    I hope you washed that frog and your hands before you took a picture of it!
