Home & Lawn Pest Control : How to Rid Your Garden of Toads


Hi, I’m Jim Harman, California pest management.
We’re here today to talk about toad control. How do you get toads to leave your garden?
Well first off, if they’re already there, remember they’re very good at your pest control
for you. They will feed on all those nasty crickets and ear wigs and other insects that
are in the ground and around the landscape, so help keep your house pest free. But if
you want to get rid of them, here are a few tricks. First off, get rid of all the clutter.
They like this kind of ground coverage. Nice and dense. And they’ll hide in that. It keeps
’em nice and moist. Now any sources of water, especially those that are ground level, or
pretty close like this little pond here on the patio. They like this and they need this
moisture so just remember, this, by eliminating this type of moisture source, you can help
control your toads, and also take care of mosquito control problems. Good luck.

  1. Are you nuts? Toads are free pest control. Unless you like getting ate up by mosquitos. Toads shoiuld be welcomed into your garden.

  2. Please consider the benefits of toads before deciding to rid your garden of them. Yes, toads can pose a danger to small pets as many secrete poison when attacked/eaten. However, the supervision of small pets and some soap for the kid's hands should keep everyone safe:) That said, in my experience toads are incredibly beneficial to a healthy garden environment. They feed generously on invasive pests (which cuts down on the use of chemicals). And, in the end, it's just fun to have around:)

  3. if they didnt crok all night and drop eggs in my pool they could stay, but I have not slept in a week so they must die. time for the bleach in a spray can
