Reptiles, Amphibians, and Nematodes (Worms) Weather Predictors

For centuries, insects have been used to foretell weather. Here is a selection of of those observations.

Toads
  • Large numbers of toads crawling out of their holes indicates rain coming. 

Frogs
  • Warbling frogs sing rain approaching.

 

  • Frogs singing in a cold rain are singing that warm weather approaches.

 

  • Tree frogs singing during a rain indicates the rain will continue.

 

  • Fog in the fall, no snow at all.

Earthworms
