Toads (or at least American Toads) are pretty unique in that, outside of breeding season, they don't move around a whole lot! They tend to always stay within 100 feet. So I would "get to know" the ones living around the house, cuz they would be there every day!
They also make for the perfect garden friend; they eat LOTS of slugs and snails that feed on your plants. Toads can sometimes eat over 1,000 insects a day!
If you ever handle a toad, be sure to wash your hands after! Toads can secrete a mild toxin from their skin when they feel threatened. I've never personally seen one do it, but you can't be too careful. It's not super dangerous to humans, but it could irritate your skin. Also, as with all reptiles and amphibians, you should be washing your hands anyways as there is always the risk of salmonella. Ultimately, its best to avoid handling them too much as amphibians have delicate skin. But, gently scooping them up to move them out of the driveway or road is always a good idea! Keep those lil guys safe!
