Farmers Concerned After Coqui Frogs are Discovered in Waimanalo –

For years, coqui frogs have wreaked havoc on the Big Island, keeping many residents awake at night.

And they’ve also popped up in some communities on Oahu, most recently in Waimanalo.

The coqui frogs are no stranger to the islands, but with the recent layoffs of inspectors at the Department of Agriculture, officials fear the invasion could get worse.

Imagine trying to sleep with this noise outside your home.

"If you go at night anywhere from Hilo out to Volcano and Volcano is at 4,000 feet above sea level the noise is deafening and it’s not a very pleasant experience," said Senator Clayton Hee.
