      They are native to my area in Georgia. They wouldn't live outside in Indiana, too cold for the little guys.

    Had toads here, destructive huge things. Read this type spray poison if bothered which could blind you . Since I have a small dog who wants to 'play' with them, it too was a concern.They would make their home in my potted flowers, displacing the soil, killing the plant. Unfortunately they moved often.. from one pot to another. Not wanting to kill anything I admit I did send them on a flight far out into the front yard and out of the patio. A kind of baseball type flight. Soon they got the impression they were not wanted. Delighted when they were replaced by a cute little green lizard. No problems, didn't even try to sell me insurance. I hoped it would find a mate. It must have because this year there are babies running around! They prefer the ground for a home [thank goodness] They're fun to watch as they sneak up on a bug. Beats the bug zapper grandma had...[grin]
