A single toad eat thousands of bugs a year. Add a toad house to your garden, and start taking advantage of this free form of pest control.
Time Required: 30 minutes or less
- Embellish the outside of your flower pot or coffee can, if desired.
- Pick out a shady spot in your garden, and dig a hole that is large enough to accomodate your container when it is laying on its side.
- Drop the container into your hole, and bury the bottom half. (Toads like to burrow, so it's important to create a dirt floor)
- Stick a handful of leaves inside the container to serve as bedding material, and your toad house is finished!
- Make sure there's a water source near your toad house. Even a saucer of water will do the trick.
- If you have pets, keep your toad house out of areas that they frequent.
- Turn your broken flower pots into toad houses. They work just as well as undamaged pots.
What You Need
