Toad Friendly Garden?

Toads make excellent additions to any garden as they keep slug and pest bug populations down. Keep your garden toad-friendly by avoiding use of pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides.

I agree 100%! I have one big toad and a small one in my main garden area. The bugs population has dropped big time since my two friends moved in. Plus, my dd loves watching them.

No toads, and the bugs aren't that bad since we are on the third floor.  :)

Interesting. We have frogs in our pond, but no toads around the yard. I'm not sure they would stay.

We have several ponds on our property so we have a lot of toads. I don't think we have enough though cause we still have a ton of bugs!

I've been looking for something to eat the aphids we are being overrun with this year.  I've heard praying mantisis can help too.  Anybody know if that's true

I know that praying mantisis are a "good bug" if that helps lol
