HELP wintering for frogs in my pond
We live in Pa, outside of Phila to the southeast. We have a small pond, more like pondette. 12-14 inch. deep and about 20x40. Plastic liner, no sands or dirt, rock on bottom. Large rock for frogs to sit on. Man made aquariam stick across pond which they like to rest on. Surrounded by slate rocks and other stones with ledges they hide under, several bushes surrounded one end but they do die back in winter, I have a small water pump to circulates the water. This year we had 20 frogs and they are decreasing and seem to be piled on each other in once corner. The Pond usually starts to freeze by Nov. What should we do? I have feed them and protected them from area cats all summer and reading the blogs here wonder if they face certain death. There are no water bodies I know of but a small run off stream that dries up on occassion and is freq. by area cats. Help!
