Does anyone know how to get rid of some frogs?

UPDATE- We have solved our frog problem. If you'd like to know what we did, go to this post. Frog Update

Okay, so I'm pretty frustrated right now. This is the third night in a row that I'll have had to try to go to sleep with the sound of croaking frogs right outside my window. I mean right outside my window. For those of you who've never been to my house, our pool sits right beside the master bedroom. Well, every once in a while, we get frogs in that pool, and it's nearly impossible to get them out. It's especially bad right after a rain. Those frogs are already croaking right now, doing their annoying little mating calls, taunting me, forcing me to consider once again leaving my nice warm bed for the smaller, harder guest bed on the other side of the house. That's the only way I've been able to get any sleep the last two nights, and I'm pretty fed up with it.

I'm looking for help here. Anyone got any ideas as to how to get rid of these things? Crystal can't sleep in the spare bedroom; she's allergic to something in there. So these frogs are affecting my marriage! She's threatened them with a knife, but it hasn't worked so far. They're pretty good at hiding, and then hopping away once they're found.

Oh, to be 2. Reed doesn't even notice the things. He sleeps hard every night, never noticing or complaining about those evil amphibians.

We'll do the dance again tonight, I'm sure. And they'll win, chasing me away from my bed and my wife once again. So I'm pretty desperate. Someone, anyone got any ideas?

That's just hilarious! Not for you, I'm sure :)

We have lots of frogs out here in the county, especially with the pond so we're used to the frogs. I will say, though, that they are usually far away and "singing" together as a group. When one individual frog gets going right outside our window, we chase it away or catch it somehow.

What eats frogs? You could find out and buy one! :)

I'm looking forward to discussing our lessons here. Hopefully I can be good!

I pray Reed is still getting better. We missed ya'll at Gabrielle's party! We had fun! See you tomorrow!
