Err... they're everywhere in QLD. Female lays up 30,000 eggs a year, and even the tadpoles are poisonous. Wait for some rain out of the city , and they'll be all over the road.

Usta have a mate who'd shoot 'em with an air rifle, but the pellets would just bounce off. Ended up with the 9 iron, which seemed to work fairly well.
When I was a lad and a smoker, I'd flick my butts (ciggie) at them when I was finished.... they're so dumb, they just swallow them immediately. Don't seem to like 'em once they've swallowed them tho.
The Aussie sport seems to be running over them on the highway. Careful of oncoming traffic tho.

All toads eat on sight, so if it moves in front of them then they eat it, if they don't like it they turn their stomachs inside out and scrape it off with their front feet.

Cut the grass at night its messy
