Last year about mid July I noticed things "moving" in my hosta beds.  I had 
an incredible build up of toads and little slug damage so discontinued using 
metaldehyde. So far this year I haven't seen that many toads.  Does anyone 
know the lifecycle of toads, overwintering in zone 4, etc.?  Will toads be 
killed by metaldehyde?
