Rain in Wesley Chapel brings out Baby Frogs

Some Wesley Chapel Residents need not step further than their backyards this week to find numerous tiny froglets in the grass and garden. These tiny beings are smaller than a thumbnail and as fast as a cricket, their tiny little legs are already functioning as superior jumpers (a frog’s jumping muscles account for approximately 17 percent of the mass of a frog).

Frogs are extremely beneficial to the backyard garden by helping to keep the bug population down. A single frog can consume 4,800 insects in one year, reducing the need for pesticides. Threats to frog and toad populations abound, including destruction of wetlands, water pollution, and unwise use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and algicides.
