In response to 143549: Using a blower on coquis?, posted by Michael 78 on Wednesday, 2 October 2019, at 8:19 p.m.
I've successfully used citric acid to kill coqui. Have a sprayer at ready and when I hear a frog, I find him, when I see him, I directly spray him - he dies. Nothing has happened to whatever plant he may have been in. Have kept my garden quiet altho' they are in the empty lot behind me. Neighbor has used baking soda, she loads a straw with it, finds the frog, then blows the straw directly at the frog, just an inch or so away. She's had at least 6 kills. Friend tells me that frogs nest in the mulch at ground level so if you hear or kill a frog, put baking soda on the mulch beneath that location. She did find tiny baby frogs in a nest! Also read that bleach or other such chemicals will do same as citric acid - but you need to make a direct hit, not a general spray. As the crow flies I am below Mamalahoa and above Magic Sands, so far our neighborhood has been able to stay ahead of the frogs except for empty undeveloped land we have no access to - the frogs are trying to invade from there.
