Yes, I said toads! A lot of people think toads are pests, but actually they are pest eaters! This is of course if your toads are native as there are a few introduced species that have become invasive. Also, toads do eat ladybugs and a few other beneficials, but considering that they eat a whopping 100 bugs each night (making 10,000 per 3 months)…I think we can forgive them.
Below is a link to a great blog post that details how to attract more toads to your garden. They love hiding spots like half a terra cotta flower pot, rock gardens or toad houses such as the one below.
