Frogs: Nuisance or Help?

Date: September 4, 2008
By: Brenda Martens
State Capitol Bureau

Intro: The Year of the Frog: that's what the Missouri Department of Conservation is calling 2008 in order to bring awareness to the conservation of our favorite hip-hopping friends. Brenda Martens (MART-TENS)has more from Jefferson City.

RunTime:
OutCue: SOC

John George, of the Missouri Department of Conservation, says he's taken a couple calls of residents complaining of a frog infestation in and around their homes. George says frogs may be a nuisance, but there isn't much a person can do to get rid of them.

Actuality:  JGEORGE.WAV

Run Time: 00:09

Description: You know, you could remove the individual frog, that's if you could catch them, but you've created habitat for them, so you're likely to get 'em to return

George says any environment that is well populated with a certain species is a sign of the environment's good health and reflects the amount of pollution in the area.
