Since this last rain, our pond has become a toad love shack. The males croak all night. I found a cluster of sticky, large, light orange eggs stuck inside one of our skimmer baskets the other day. Are these toad eggs? What should I do with them? If I let them hatch in the pond what will the tadpoles do? When / if they develop into toads, will they go away, or will the pond become overstocked with toads? I read somewhere on the web, that you can collect the male toads in a bucket overnight, and they will be quiet, but that seems cruel.
