I collect the critters & put them in a sandwich bag, sprinkle salt inside, knot the bag,& shake it like a maraca. The bag can then be placed in a bin with no mess involved. Im going to buy some copper tape (its cheap on a certain internet site) but I will experiment & try lining a couple of pots INSIDE the rim as I would prefer not to see the copper tape.
In the future,I plan to have pond & introduce frogs and toads into the garden & then hopefully I won't have to 'salt and shake' anymore :-)
