About two months ago, (long story) I discovered that a tree frog...a very large tree frog...was stuck in the drain of my bathroom sink. I had a plumber come remove him. (Yes, I'm in central Florida!) He had never seen one, but had heard the stories. I was told that they come in through the roof vents. I used downspout inserts (for leaves) to cap them. As I was capping the main, there was a rather large one looking at me, who disappeared down the abyss. Two days ago, a small tree frog came up through the shower drain to say "Hi". I am now afraid of my plumbing. Is there anything I can put down the pipes to chase them all away??

I hope someone had an answer for you. If not I will trade your frog in the drain for my snake in the dishwasher!! Oh the joys of the Florida lifestyle!!!

Good Luck and keep hopping! :)

No thank you. you may keep the snake. How large was it? I have heard of them coming into the toilet, but not in the dishwasher.
