Animal Control In The Garden


Anonymous added on July 12, 2011 | Answered

I have a window box that a toad loves to burrow in. I have pushed him out several times, but he keeps coming back. I would be happy to have him live there, but he has uprooted several of my flowering plants. Is there anything I can put on the surface which will repel him or keep him from burrowing in? Would moth balls work?
