I live in Hawaii and have a small fish pond. It attracts Bufo toads like crazy and they lay eggs in it. Will your toad control products help and not harm the fish in the pond?
The products listed in our TOAD CONTROL article have been used successfully for Bufo toads here in the southeast for many years. And they can be used safely in yards which have pets and/or ponds with fish.
The most common approach being used by our customers is to apply PEST RID GRANULES throughout the yard focusing on any path way the toads might be using to enter the property. Next, spraying the same areas with PEST RID SPRAY on top of the granules will keep them out of the yard for several weeks following the treatment.
Now how many weeks will the applications last? Typically 3-4 weeks so renew them once a month to insure the toads don’t return. Pest Rid is ideal for yards with sensitive areas like ponds, streams or rivers because it uses nothing but food grade actives and won’t pose a hazard to people, pets or aquatic life in case of run off.
For the “best” control, first apply granules. These are packed in 2 lb jars and each jar will treat 500 sq/ft. These granules will not work alone but should be used with the spray. When the spray is applied over the granules, you’ll get 60+ days of protection. The granules will absorb the spray and keep it active for at least twice as long compared to using just the spray.
After applying the granules, spray over the top with LIQUID PEST RID. This comes packed in two sizes: gallons and quarts.
The quart jug, pictured to the right, will cover 125 sq/ft and comes with its own sprayer. The gallon does not come with a sprayer but its more economical as it will cover up to 500 sq/ft.
If you get the gallon jug, you can use a simple TRIGGER SPRAYER WITH HOSE to spray it. This one is handy, easy to use and comes with an adjustable nozzle.
You can also use any standard PUMP SPRAYER.
