    Smile insect control...

    Here is one of my frogs in the lower left hand corner of this picture. I believe that my greenhouse is insect free because of my frogs. Betty

    I have no Idea, Leslie. But he/she seems content to live in my greenhouse! My lower vents now have screens on them, to prevent the snake from getting into the greenhouse. I hope this does not disturb the frogs' comings & goings...Betty

    Last summer I had two Eastern fence lizards as companions in my greenhouse. They even wintered in there. When the weather got warmer, they left one day when I forgot to shut the door securely. I miss little Willard and Winnie.
