How do I keep skunks and moles from drowning in my pool? I also have frogs and salamanders that like to swim. Water is balanced and clean.


A trick for keeping small animals out of the pool area is to spray predator urine around the perimeter of the pool area, concentrating on where you suspect they are coming from. A little bit goes a long way with this stuff. You can find predator urine (such as fox or coyote urine) wherever hunting supplies are sold. For frogs and salamanders, make sure you keep the lights off in and around the pool at night as this attracts bugs and the bugs attract the frogs and salamanders.
