Large numbers of the green and brown croakers have been seen sunning and bathing themselves in backyards from Spotswood to Bell Block after a bumper breeding season.
Neighbours Nancy Mills and Sue Taylor from Bell Block were surprised to find so many frogs hopping around.
"We've had them in the house, in the bathroom and the bedroom and the laundry and the garage," Mrs Mills said.
"We've had to turn all our buckets upside down because the little ones jump in and then can't get back out and die in there," she said.
I suppose it is to help us prepare for seder night and Pesach. Thank you New Plymouth.
