How does it work?

Cane toad tadpoles in Australia display cannibalistic tendencies, seeking out other cane toad eggs in nature. The Watergum Cane Toad Tadpole Lure is scientifically proven to replicate this phenomenon, drawing entire swarms of cane toad tadpoles into the trap in a matter of hours.

The lure is an environmentally friendly, humane solution. The lure is only attractive to cane toad tadpoles and has no impact on waterway health or native frog species.

Why does Australia need the Watergum Cane Toad Tadpole Trap + Lure?

Cane toads are an invasive species that pose a threat to native wildlife, our pets, and our agricultural industry. With an estimated two billion toads, and an ever-expanding range across Australia, we need your help to control cane toads.

Did you know? Adult cane toads produce 35x more eggs than native frogs, like the green tree frog, each year. We need to control cane toad populations before they can do more damage to our native species!
