Commentary

Hi Janet, thank you for your report of bullfrogs. Yes, they are invasive. There is no bounty on bullfrogs, and because they have become so widespread and invasive, there are no places to donate them. If you are seeking a method to humanely kill them, one method that is suggested is found at this hyperlink:
