Remove toad temptations to help make your home a ‘Cane Toad Free Zone’:

  • Cover or bring in pet food at night as it attracts cane toads
  • Remove standing water. Toads need access to water every two days to rehydrate
  • Remove rubbish and other debris so cane toads cannot shelter under it during the day
  • Keep your outside lights off when not needed. Cane toads like night time lighting because it attracts moths and other insects for them to feast on.
