The other day I opened the door my garage and a frog was right outside. I tried to shoo him away but instead he hopped into the garage, into the morass of bikes, Costco purchases, gardening tools and assorted whatnot, and was lost to view.
Now I have no intention of turning over that garage just to find the guy, but I have this feeling that the place might not be good for his health. There might be an occasional stray bug there, but not much and no water. Plus the temperature gets even hotter than outside, and we are experiencing a heatwave at the moment.
So my question is whether there’s any way of encouraging the frog to go out, short of leaving the doors open all night, and/or will the guy go on his own to a location near a door such that I can let him out, or remain hidden somewhere? (Actually a few days before that, I came into the garage in the morning and there was a frog - possibly the same one FAIK - sitting on a plastic bag near the front door, so I sent him on his way. Maybe he liked the place …)
Ah, I have an electric garage door opener, so you can stop it in any position and it won’t just slide up manually. Of course, around here, I don’t think anyone locks their garage doors anyway, so that hadn’t even occurred to me.
It sounds like you’re going to have to construct a “froggy door.”
