Our garden insect control

Bug-B-Gon or toads?
 Actually I have on occasion used Ortho Bug-B-Gon to solve a difficult insect problem in the garden.   But our day-to-day bug control are toads, one of which is pictured above.   They are always on patrol in the backyard gardens and look quite well-fed and healthy.   They've been around for a few years and tolerate Linda's and my presence fairly well.   They even seems to accept their fate that they will always be tapped a few times, by our cat Jamie, each time they pass by.   We always have to be careful where we step in the garden and take it slow.   Who wants to rush in the garden anyway?   And no, they do not have names other than 'Toad'.
Please comment if you wish.
