Humane Gecko Trap

Recommended Posts

Discovered this by accident but it's been quite effective.  Put about 1/2" of honey in the bottle.  Probably don't need a cap.  Place bottle in a dish of water to keep the ants away.  The geckos easily jump from the wall to the bottle.  They become mired in the honey and cannot climb back out.  Dump them outside in the morning.

 

I've heard Thais say it's good luck to have a gecko in the house but when one jumped off the kitchen table into my lap I said enough is enough!

Jeez, you want to start trapping jinjoks? Why? Do you know how many bugs they eat? Tokays are even better, we've loads around the outside of the house. A jinjok in the lap is no big deal, I note you are averse to catching ants....get a life.

Last week we had one in the bathroom with diarrhea, it was all over the wall.....he was sitting on the shampoo bottle and got wet when i showered..but it was so sick it couldn't even climb the wall anymore.

 

We also have them in the sliding doors, sometimes a crushed jinjok falls down when we open the door. They

Sticky rat traps also work, nothing lucky about having a load of <deleted> down the walls!

You got my hopes up with the title but you must just mean the small jin-joks not actual geckos....they'd never fit in that bottle!

Jin-joks I just tolerate, their droppings are tiny.

But if anyone has a humane trap or deterent for the geckos, I'm very interested....

that sticky stuff they wrap around a stick to catch flies also catches geckos. i find that sad as it messes up their climbing feet

more geckos/jinjocks/tokays the better as far as i am concerned. never had the diarrhea on the walls. big ones tokays dont come inside, ok have seen one inside behind a picture in the hotel entrance hall. didnt last long the staff got to it after they saw me looking at it. they are worth money. small ones only <deleted> little insignificant bricks

One of the cruellest ways to dispose of anything. You have to be a real sadist to use those.

Says a bloke who almost certainly eats animals that have had their throats cut, fish that have died in pain and stress and chickens that have head the heads ripped off. People are such hypocrites when it comes to animal welfare.
