I’ve got a net, but can tell if I forgot to put in chlorine tabs. Those frogs “jump” at the chance to lay eggs, and it looks like black dots all over the pond. Hundreds, if not thousands. The tabs are extremely effective.

Also, the chlorine doesn’t seem to hurt Donald and Daisy, which I’ve named the two ducks that have been visiting.

......and people wonder why species are finding it hard to survive.
Put the chlorine in after they hatch, and leave.
Most will be eaten by predators anyway.
