If you hear a coqui... CALL the Coqui Hotline at 889-1777
Male frogs seek out sturdy wide-leafed plants such as Ti, Ginger, Heliconia, and Banana. Bromeliads are a prime host plant for nesting purposes.
Keep underbrush and litter which could be used as nesting sites picked up. Create an open or low ground cover "buffer strip" along your property's perimeter.
Inspect each new item before loading it into a container or vehicle. Notify the storekeeper if you discover frogs or their "tapioca"-like egg masses.
Keep your lawn trimmed on a regular basis.
Areas containing rocks that are an inch or bigger should be filled in with fine cinder to eliminate frog burrow areas.
If you can't take large piles of green waste to the transfer station, apply hydrated lime to the top of the pile. This will break down the green waste into good compost. Coqui-infested waste should never by dumped on vacant lots or roads.
Coqui frogs are very adaptable, changing their behavior to suit their surroundings and to ensure their survival.
After initial treatment, follow up by listening for calling males. Subsequent sprays may be needed.
