Baby Toad Migration

Rain means toads and frogs and when they grow out of the tadpole stage, they leave the ponds. Thousands of tiny toads appeared everywhere in just one day, crossing roads, hanging out by my back door to eat all the bugs, filling my swimming pool. I had 200 or so in my pool the first day. I got them all out and released them in a safe place then built and exit ramp for them so they could get back out and continue on their way. The next day I removed about 50 and after that just a few per day. I'm happy to say none died in my pool. Each toad will eat tons of mosquitos and we need that, so the more toads the better.
