Default Finding little frogs hoppin around my house...

I have now found 6 frogs hopping around my house within the time period of a week. Three in the living room area, and three in my room. One even came hopping out of my closet. I've never had this happen before and I'm a little freaked out. This may be normal in Florida, but I live in western Washington, and it's October....

.....?

WE have small grey's tree frogs hopping about, no bigger than your fingernail. I saw a couple yesterday and heard one on my window last night.

Might be a sign of Plague, I'd keep an eye on your firstborn and try to repent...

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

Now that it's getting cold they're probably coming inside where it's warm.

If they are treefrogs, don't feel sorry for them. THey have something in their blood that works much like antifreeze. They don't even burrow down to hibernate, they just get under the leaf litter so they are not visible. We have a ton of these red and black bugs all over our building, thousands of them probably looking for a place to hibernate themselves. The tree frogs I saw are too small to eat these bugs, but your might be bigger. WE had late hatches because of the drought so I think the ones no bigger than my pinkie fingernail ought to be much larger in size, tho they never get bigger than a quarter. My guess is somewhere under your house you might have had some water they hatched out of, and then they have finished up whatever food source was available and have struck out for new land. Putting them outside is the best thing for them, hopefully near some woods where they can do what they do best. I have a very soft spot in my heart for tree frogs. I think they are awesome.
