Most frogs and wildlife are more active at night, so the main way to tell if the early FrogLog was working was to see if any little bodies surfaced in the mornings — and the pools were increasingly clear.
Mason started to make a few hundred of these devices each year, just out of his garage, for people who wanted to save animals from their pools. Eventually, FrogLog became more official, making it available to help animals all over.
And animal lovers are raving about it. “The good part is we get such great feedback from people, really passionate emails saying this is the best thing since sliced bread,” Mason said.
"It was such a relief to not find dead frogs in the pool's filtration basket, or floating on the surface," a Connecticut resident said. "I also had a resident bullfrog who lived comfortably in the pool, would haul out on the FrogLog for a rest, and use it to get into and out of the pool whenever he wished."
