About Toad Busters

090117 PBG column 3.JPG

Owner/Operator Jeannine Tilford is a South Florida native who has worked for more than 25 years as a science teacher, animal educator, Herpetologist and Veterinary Technician.  


Jeannine has seen the devastating results of non-native species invading our beautiful state's ecosystem—including the loss of pets to cane toad toxins.  


In an effort to help maintain manageable numbers of the Bufo/cane toad and protect others' beloved, four-legged family members, she founded Toad Busters in 2015. Jeannine also founded Pet Protect Fencing, which installs maintenance-free mesh barriers to block dangerous toads out of a certain area. 


In addition to Jeannine, the company employs skilled technicians who are background checked and have a protocol to follow in order to ensure professional, thorough and courteous service.

Jeannine/Toad Busters is a registered Nuisance Wildlife Trapper (reptiles and snakes) with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
