So, I would like to show you my new neighbor. Yep, that is right toad houses really do work!
OK, so not everyone finds toads beautiful. However, a single toad can eat about 110 beetles, ants, June bugs, grasshoppers, moths and other bugs every day. That's right around 3,300 every month! Wow! Yummy!
I guess it only makes sense since toads are most active at night, so during the day they need a fairly dark, cool place to hide from the sun and predators. You will find me encouraging these bug-hungry hunters to have a nice long stay in my garden by providing this
adorable affordable toad house.
I would like to suggest that you find an old bowl and place it in an area in your garden and before long you'll have a new neighbor, too.
