American bullfrog control: Habitat modification
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
Habitat modification such as increasing shade for native species, removing protective cover, or breaking up wet travel corridors may offer a technique to indirectly reduce bullfrog populations and establish or increase native amphibian populations. For example, bullfrogs have been found to be less abundant in ponds with shallow sloping banks and extensive emergent vegetation (Adams et al. 2003).
