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?

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Toxicity data for the active ingredient (methiocarb) to reptiles are not available, 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.

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
