April is National Frog Month!
April is National Frog Month so what better month to celebrate these fascinating amphibians and think about how we can help them in our gardens.
Frogs, toads and newts are great pest controllers: they eat slugs, snails, beetles and flies in gardens and in crop fields.
Amphibians are considered keystone species and are also important in the study of ecosystems. Frogs are connected to a lot of other species in their food web so, their population is often used as an indicator; if numbers begin to decline, it can also means other, less obvious, species are likely to be under threat also.
The easiest way to attract frogs to your garden is by having a pond, as this is not always possible, other ways is to provide damp, cool spots for them to shelter, this can be achieved by leaving long grass in sheltered areas of the garden, or leaving piles of leaves and log piles.
