llombardo Last night when I came home Midnite looked a little green. He also had icky poop. I didn't feed him, because I wanted his stomach to rest. He are something. Last night he needed to go out and as soon as we got outside there was a big fat toad. He stopped, smelled it and kept going . I do remove them as I catch them but probably not far enough. I might just get a container and go toad hunting then bring them a few blocks from me. If I didn't have dogs and I did have a person other then myself cutting the grass I wouldn't mind them, I do think they are cute. If my dogs can live in harmony with them I have accomplished a lot. When we were younger we had pet toads and bull frogs, 3 girls and those were our choice over hamsters and gerbils

Maxil Don't water the grass for 2-3 days and that will make them less appealed to your backyard, even killing them wont solve it you will have a huge graveyard with many dead toads in there. So the only solution is to stop watering the grass and GL

llombardo I think we are good with the toads, they are leaving them alone. Today a big one was hopping and I told them to leave it and they did, but they were still interested in the movement.

VALIUM I used to live in Ft.Lauderdale and those bufus frogs were my nightmare. They get so big ewwwwww it is the only animal disgusted me so far, man tell me about it, they are huge.!! And yes they can kill a small dog or cat cause they secrete poison. Sorry but I hate those, and bufus don't belong to Florida. They were brought from South America and released, just like Burmese phytons in Everglades. Sorry but no frogs for me 😊

Pioneer53 It is just not worth the severe vomiting and diarrhea the dogs and cats would get here... Short grass and weed eating help do help keep it dry and uninviting. Really no different than bugs that get mowed...

We scoop them up with a bucket and lid and 'rehomed' them the previous two years, our property was big enough to do that. This year we only found one big toad this spring and rehomed him. None since this year but we keep an eye out. So doing that will keep the future population down.

llombardo I know that they (toads)have a taste about them the dogs don't like. I have seen the dogs shake their heads like eeww and even drool. They have refrained from eating the bigger toads and they actually indicate when they sed one. It's the smaller frogs that I'm more concerned with. I'm going to edge the fence line, it's not that bad, so I'll do it by hand first and clear them up.

kr16 Here the Bufo toads will kill a dog within minutes. If your dog licks or eats a frog or toad you have to wash out the mouth with a hose immediately. Here its life saving for you it just may be to stop the dog from getting sick.
