Frogs and pesticides.

Years ago I listened to a Council worker arguing that herbicides and pesticides do not harm frogs.  Those of us who live and observe close to the ground, have noticed over the years the dramatic decline of frogs in our Shire.

Before contract workers sprayed the drains on our road, I would hear the occasional croak as I walked by.

No more, just silence.

In my garden.
