Wanted: Toad Roommate

Last year, slugs ate every one of my strawberries, the greedy bastards.  Well, not this year!  I am told that toads will eat slugs, and they will willingly come to stay as long as you provide them a house.  A toad likes to live in a mini cave - basically a pile of rocks with an opening.  And so, as my little green strawberries are just beginning to form inside their flowers, I went outside today and constructed the sweetest toad residence on the block.  (I certainly hope toads are on the internet...who am I kidding?!  Every species is now on the internet!

So, first allow me to show some photos of the fabulous, crime free and certainly non-toad eating yard in which your dream house is situated:

First, you've got your flowers....

your trees....

 ...and your groundskeeper, Buddy (shown on his break).

 I mean, seriously, what Toad wouldn't want to live in this fabulous lap of luxury??

ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS!! (Free lodging and all-you-can eat slugs!)

I only hope I am not creating an "old lady who swallowed a fly" situation here...
