Default Frogs in septic tank

This is weird but true: We have these little grey/green frogs climbing
into the house through the toilets. I've had the septic line to the
tank checked and there are no breaks so I'm pretty sure they aren't
coming in that way. How do I get rid of them? If I shock the tank
won't that also kill off the 'good' organisms? Any suggestions are
appreciated...

Assuming this is a legit question...... The frogs could be coming
in through the roof plumbing vents. Try covering the vent pipes
on the roof with some screening.

Are you sure they're coming in from the toilet and not going there searching
for water? Sorry for the next comment, Brian . . .

but I find it all too "ribbeting!"

I find it more likely that they are coming down the stack from the roof.
That's the way the squirrel got in the pipe and then came up through the
toilet when it was flushed!! My next door neighbor's wife was sitting on the
throne at the time, Most horrible sound you've ever heard!!

Then why do they put them in half baths?
