The problem in a forest, is that water collects in tree holes, so we can't make sure that there's no standing water for them. Also, there are year-round creeks here, in town, etc.
Mine are here until the end of summer, then one day, poof, they are gone. It's never made sense as there's no less water than the week before, and the weather doesn't change first.
