Does anyone have any tips or ideas for how to deal with Cuban Tree Frogs. They are so noisy at night, loud enough to wake you!

Please!?!

Yup, we wore earplugs continuously for about 4 months last year. I was really hoping not to have to do the same this year. Otherwise, I keep missing the alarm in the morning!!

Would a white noise machine work? Or even running a fan?

That would help with the falling asleep!

I would really love to find a way of getting rid of them or deterring them from coming near the house. My concern is, if left unchecked, there will just be more and more each year.

Anyone have any ideas??

In the summer they are all around my parent's home. However, the noise inside is minimal. I think the solution is to have better windows or maybe stuff a mattress over the window openings.

To me the frogs are white noise themselves. They've never bothered me.
Now, about my husband's snoring....

Wow, is this what we were hearing in late April? After a couple of evenings of serious thunderstorms and rain, the little pond opposite us had grown in size. There was a very loud buzzing noise coming from the pond, all night. It didn't even sound natural, it sounded like some kind of machine.

A couple of days later, we walked over there, and there hundreds of little tiny frogs jumping all over the place, underfoot. It quieted down after a couple of dry days, plus the egrets, spoonbills and ibises came and dealt with the problem.
