Glazed ceramic toad house

Toads are ideal to have around the garden as their favourite foods are slugs and snails. They can also catch insects like spiders, flies and mosquitoes with their sticky tongues, and larger ones even prey on slow worms, small grass snakes and harvest mice.

You'll sometimes see them in the daytime following rainfall, but they are generally nocturnal and are especially active on rainy nights. They don't need to live near a pond or stream, apart from during their breeding season, but they do prefer a protected, moist and shady spot.

During the day they will shelter under tree roots, stones and vegetation unless they have superior accommodation - like this specially designed toad abode!
