Absolute waste of Money and effort.

When small, these little critters can get through even the smallest of Gaps ( under doors Etc )

Just live with them, and say thanks to them for keeping down the Ants in your House.

As my house is left empty for extended periods, I used to have to spend hours cleaning up each time I arrived after the little b'stards had roamed free all over my house whilst I was away.  I searched for everywhere to find where they were getting in and blocked each place as I found it. It still made little difference and I had to face their sh*t everytime I arrived. It baffled me, I thought I'd blocked every possible entry point. You would be amazed how/where they get in - the smallest crack is a doorway for them. I've even found dead ones in light switches - they've come down from the loft in through the conduit buried in the render!

 

At that time my house had the usual cheapo Thai/Chinese sliding plastic windows - the ones with brush seals.  One day I was sat watching TV when I saw a baby jing jock just walk in under the window - through the brush seals!

 

Since then the house has been refurbished and has uPVC windows and I've been on a 'crusade' against the damned things. I don't particularly like having to sleep in a bed that they've shat on each time I arrive.  I'm now 99.9% jing jock free.  On the odd occasion that they get in now, I think its most likely because my gf has a habit of leaving doors open. Interesting though, that they can get in though aircon units - I'll have to look into that.

 

I'm not suggesting that you change your windows to get rid of them but if you have windows of the type I mentioned, you won't get rid of them unless you do.

Just seen one peeping out behind a picture frame,

I'm sure he winked at me.

There are worse things creeping about in Pattaya.

Definitely worse things about. Wonder if we can use sticky paper for the soi dogs running around... ?

I really didn't know that JingJocks were into computers. But I have just updated mine, and none are now visible.   555

I used to like teasing them with a red laser pointer. although they learn to ignore it in time. There don't seem so many around recently. perhaps this is due to a large increase in feral cats in my neighbourhood. My domestic cats will kill them but not eat them. perhaps feral cats are less fussy. Leave a light on at night in your porch, it attracts insects so attracts geckos.

hear hear. sticky traps? you'd need to be a sicko to buy them ... and don't bother listing a buch of other stuff that's 'worse' like burning cane fields, drunk-driving etc ... that's outside your control (unless you happen to be a drunk cane farmer) ... going into a shop and buying a device that is certain to cause slow and agonising death to another creature? that's YOUR decision buddy. 

 

Bigger picture? geckos were probably there for 10,000 generations before you. Who needs to adapt to who?

 

Not interested in the bigger picture? Evolve yourself into a modern sterile pest-sprayed concrete sealed-window air-conditioned apartment surrounded by asphalt and other people who imagine they control the environment. You'll be happier and so will the geckos.

 

Just don't get stuck on the asphalt on a hot day.

Best response yet.

Not if you have door sweeps and weather stripping. My screens are 100% effective. No gaps, no geckos. Love it.

Anyone find any jingjok eggs in their home? One rolled out from behind a power cover opening the other day in my place and splattered on the floor.
