Toad House

Leave a comment

Guess they really do work.

This one is up on the deck – it’s the same toad that appears year after year (he’s shown in earlier blogs). This house was out for less than a week and he found his way into it – and seemed to enjoy it seeing as he stayed for quite a while and then made a few return visits.

From what I’ve read, if you build it, they will come – even an upside down flower pot with an opening large enough for the toad to fit through works. Some sites do recommend a second hole in the back of the house – an escape route for them if they are feeling threatened by an outsider.

Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
