    Thank you for your reply, Ted.

    The large pond has been here for several years. It only has a very small wooded area, and no frogs have managed to find it. It does support life, as it does contain fish and turtles. Was just hoping I could start adding some frogs, as I have always enjoyed them.

    Thanks again.

    Rj,,,fish and turtles but no frogs yet?ok,,let's see,,it's a good time of year to try to net some tadpoles,maybe at your nearest frog pond.you can send away for frogs and or tadpoles, try kingsnake.com.( but be careful of the vendor),if treefrogs are in the immediate area you might bring them in by hanging lights outside your pond at night to draw them,they come to the light to get the insects,which is what your really attracting.gray treefrogs need trees though,,

    Gray tree frogs and toads aren't going to stick around the pond longer than for breeding. I'd look into getting some tadpoles, northern green frogs or northern leopard frogs, that seems to be what I find most consistently in the pond behind our house. I personally would not introduce bullfrogs to the area if they aren't already there. I've noticed a huge decline in the frog population in my neighborhood since I noticed bullfrogs for the first time about 4 years ago, I can only imagine it's going to get worse with them eating everything.
