Where will the Project(s) take Place:
- All Projects are in District 8.
- TMK 74-002014, 74-008060, 74-06011. Honokohau Mauka
- TMK 74-008047, 74-008048, 74-008060.Palani
- TMK 74-006012.The German Gardner
- Locating, mapping and documenting areas of frog infestation and begin spraying
- Spray areas will be mapped out with date and amount of lime used.
- We will listen at night and tag the areas where we hear coqui frogs.
- The team will be monitoring these areas after spraying for re-infestation or eradication.
- Log books will be kept on this monitoring along with chemicals used and man hours.
- This process will be repeated every two weeks for several months.
- Spray Areas will be mapped out with date and amount of lime applied
- We will listen at night and tag the areas where we hear Coqui frogs.
- We will then spray in the day time or late afternoon / Evening hours.
- We will follow up spraying every week to two weeks
- Records of all activity will be kept so as to determine our progress, expenses and material used
This project will be considered successful only after the coqui frogs and eggs are eradicated from the infested areas that were located and mapped out. We will definitely be aware of complete silence when the community no longer hears the “ko-kee” sound generated by the coqui frog during a five-eight month period. At the end of that period we will know that the spraying of all frogs and eggs was a complete success. Also success will be when our nurseries have put the coqui frog on top of their priority list with a plan to ensure no infested plants are arriving at their locations and procedures for eradicating existing frogs or eggs.
