Some Australians see cane toads as the worst invasive species in the country, worse than rabbits, foxes, and cats.

How to solve the invasion of cane toads
create a sleeping spray that only affects cane toads. Spray it on there food and it won't kill them it will just put them to sleep for eternity. it would work because it would only put some of the cane toads asleep. And there would not be as many to reproduce.

Cane toads were brought to Australia to eat the beetles that were destroying their crops. The unintended consequence was they spread everywhere.
