Will snail pellets or baits kill frogs and skinks?

I’ve got a big snail & slug problem but they share the garden with lots of fence skinks & little brown frogs so am not sure if I should use your snail baits or pellets?

General Advice • Pests

The active ingredient in Yates Baysol Snail & Slug is Methiocarb, there is no available toxicity data for the effect on reptiles, so a toxic hazard to reptiles may exist. Therefore, we do not recommend you use this product if you have a population of lizards in your garden. Lizards feed on slugs and snails, so best to allow them to keep any in your garden under control. This product is now discontinued.

For a safer alternative, apply Yates Snail & Slug Bait. For more great information on preventing and controlling Snail and Slugs in your garden, click here.
