Tree frogs require several things to survive. They need a steady diet of nutritious insects, plenty of moisture, a water source to breed in and plenty of tall trees or walls to climb.

Accordingly, the best way to discourage the persistence of tree frogs is by removing any standing water sources near their perches. This includes swimming pools, garden ponds and items that may contain only a small amount of water, such as buckets.
