Frogs Drowning In Your Pool?

Frogs regularly drown in pools in people's backyards. They enter the pool thinking it's a great place to breed. Unfortunately, it's often just a death trap, as they can't manage to climb back over the walls to escape. There are five million in-ground pools in the United States, and thus it's quite possible that over 50 million frogs die in American pools each year. Luckily, there is a solution...

The Critter Skimmer saves the frogs!

Critter Skimmer photo by The Critter Skimmer is a magical and revolutionary device that allows frogs, turtles, mice, and other small critters to rescue themselves from in-ground pool skimmers. Animals that enter the pool can save themselves by climbing up the attached spiral rescue ramp, through the opening in the skimmer cover, and then emerging into the safety of the terrestrial realm. You may never know they were there unless you see them hopping away! Frogs won't pile up in your pool skimmer if you have a Critter Skimmer!

The Critter Skimmer Story

Pool skimmer Critter Skimmer's inventor Brian Meagher loves frogs and didn't want to see them die in pools. So one day in the summer of 2007, the Critter Skimmer was born! Day after day, frogs hopped to safety...until the day he took the Critter Skimmer out and forgot to put it back.
The next morning, 29 frogs were waiting in the skimmer basket with no means of escape. So go order yourself a Critter Skimmer, or give one as a gift to a pool-owning friend, because 29 frogs can’t be wrong!

Cool Pool Fact: The town of Groton, MA requires all pools to have Critter Skimmers!

"With our recent rains I have seen hundreds if not thousands of frogs trapped in swimming pools" -- Carol Sharpe, Narromine, Australia

"I have some customers that live in the woods and kill 3 dozen frogs a season in their skimmers." -- Matt Swett, Pool Repairman, Virginia

"Over the weekend I was literally saving frogs. My parents' pool cover had fallen in and was filled with water and leaves. A frog found a home there and created hundred of tadpoles. I couldn't let my Dad just drain them all out. So we got a bucket and net and transferred many of them to a nearby pond. I really felt for those little guys and wanted to show my son how important it is to take care of other beings. He was with my husband and I saving the frogs as a family so now we all want T-shirts."
-- Maggie Mistal, Career Coach

Frog Poetry

Frogs are cool, oh so cool
Don't be frightened if they are swimming in your pool
They are just cooling off from the heat
They can jump over twenty-one feet
--By Ashlee Jones, 10
