Cane Toad question

What can I do to stop Cane Toads

Submitted by Graeme Sawyer on 30-Oct-2001.


Stopping cane Toads will not be easy unless some form of biological control is found. However we recommend you do things that will minimise their impact in your area. This will minimise the impact on local frogs and other animals. This includes removing eggs from breeding areas and removing mature toads from your area. These toads should be disposed of humanely. We suggest putting them in a freezer and freezing them or placing them in a refrigerator and when they are cold euthanasing them with a sharp blow to the skull with a heavy blunt object. We are also working on the deelopment of traps which are proving effective in catching toads. One of these in your yard will help keep your place toad free.
