DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - There's a rapidly growing population of frogs in parts of Dougherty County though a lot of those frogs are getting wiped out by drivers.

Monday afternoon we found an army of little hoppers trying to cross busy Radium Springs Road. Some didn't make it.

They're coming from a low-lying pecan orchard still full of water from last month's heavy rain and flooding. It's not the only place where the amphibians seem to be taking over.

Neighbors in Putney called in a pest control agency but the exterminators say the frogs help get rid of pests and shouldn't be wiped out.
