A frog crawled up my HVAC condensate pipe

Every time it rains hard in the summer season, I hear the tree frogs outside singing. We have a huge population of tree frogs in this area, and they’re the first thing you hear after a steady rainfall. I grew up in an area that had more bullfrogs than tree frogs. I even used to hunt for bullfrogs at our pond by sticking my hand underneath rocks along the shoreline. Even though I feel bad about it now for disturbing the frogs in their homes, I had a lot of fun doing it when I was a kid. I did it before I moved to the South and started catching lizards by hand. That’s where I’m living now, and it’s also where we have so many tree frogs, especially in the summer. A lot of times people will get annoyed listening to the frogs, but I enjoy it every single time. However, I recently had a problem with a frog that cost me a lot of money. Many modern air conditioners have a shut off switch when the condensate line gets clogged. That’s the pipe that carries the exhaust water out of your air conditioner and takes it outside. Basically, the air gets dried as it goes through the air conditioner and the moisture is collected via the condensate line. An old air conditioner is like mine, if this condensate line gets clogged it will back up into the air conditioner itself. That water then floods the air conditioner and the space underneath it as well. In my case thankfully my air conditioner is in my garage so all it did was create a pool of water on some concrete. I had to call the heating and cooling company to send out a technician to clear the frog clog.
