What Happened to My Frogs?
I have been buying bull frog tadpoles for about 4 years and I have only seen 2 frogs out of sometimes 6 tadpoles at a time. Can someone help me as to find out what is happening to them all? I don't even hear frogs in my yard. Thanks.

There are many reasons this could be happening.
Firstly, frogs are very, very sensitive to chemicals. If you are using any kind of chemical pesticide or herbicide, you could be inadvertently killing them.
Second, frogs are a favorite snack of many animals, like raccoons and opossums. These night time raiders may be making a snack of your tadpoles.
You may also not be providing the right environment for them to be happy in your yard. This article will help with that:
