We need your help! If you can catch or control coqui on your own property you help free up our crew to focus on control in difficult-to-access gulches and ravines.
You can pick up citric acid to control coqui frogs from MISC between the hours of 7:30am and 4:00pm Mon-Thursday and on Friday from 7:30am to 12:00pm. We are located at 820 Piiholo Road in Makawao. Call for more details: 573-6471.
There is another small frog in Hawaii, the greenhouse frog, that is often confused with the coqui. However, the greenhouse frogs are not as loud, do not reach the same density as coqui, nor are they able to invade upper elevations.
Still not sure? If you have the frog, compare it to the images on this poster from the University of Hawaii-College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources-Cooperative Extension Service:
Remember: Coqui call in the evening and into the night. Occasionally coqui will call during cool rainy days. They have a very loud two-note call that sounds like “Co-Qui, Co-Qui”
IF you have coqui, here are a few things you can do:
- Eliminate frog-friendly habitat: https://mauiinvasive.org/2015/
- Catch or spray your own coqui: https://mauiinvasive.org/2015/
