Research along the lines of interrupting the coqui frog life cycle is being considered. A spray can be developed
to make the coqui frog sterile by interfering with its reproductive
processes. It would be specific only to the coqui frog and
would break down in sunlight after about a week. Currently, preliminary work is being to done to rear sterilized male coqui frogs by exposing eggs to irradiation to determine whether the hatchling frogs will mature into sterile adults. It is too premature to determine whether a sterile male release program adapted from the fruit fly model can be part of a control strategy.
