Toad House

Leave a comment

Guess they really do work.

This one is up on the deck – it’s the same toad that appears year after year (he’s shown in earlier blogs). This house was out for less than a week and he found his way into it – and seemed to enjoy it seeing as he stayed for quite a while and then made a few return visits.

From what I’ve read, if you build it, they will come – even an upside down flower pot with an opening large enough for the toad to fit through works. Some sites do recommend a second hole in the back of the house – an escape route for them if they are feeling threatened by an outsider.
