Why Toads are great for your Garden

Amongst other useful things Toads are great insect population regulators in your garden as they gobble down beetles, slugs, crickets, flies, ants and other invertebrates. Larger toad species even eat small rodents and snakes. All toads will try to eat anything they can pull into their mouths and swallow, they are strict carnivorous.

When it comes to natural pest control, you can’t do much better than a healthy toad population on your property on top og the birds.
