I have been going to garden centers, like the one at my neighborhood Home Depot and asking if they find frogs. Everyone that i have talked with so far have said, yes, at some point they have heard and found frogs in their plants. One guy, i spoke with suggested that i visit during a rainy day, that is when he has heard them. However, it is not all the time, and several months will sometimes pass between hearing frogs. An interesting side note, many years ago, someone showed me a Northwestern Salamander that was found in a shipment of Christmas Trees.
Link here to paper concerning Northwestern Salamanders and Christmas Trees.
Just got another Coqui Frog this week. This time in Long Beach. If others learn of Coqui Frogs, or better yet get photos or recordings, please submit those to a citizen science project like HERP or RASCals so that there is some documentation of the widespread introduction of these frogs.
