Getting rid of the small lizards?

Recommended Posts

I like the little geckos, I really do. But we don't like their droppings everywhere. The house is pretty well sealed, with fly screens on all windows and a rubber strip on the bottom of the back door. We have manually caught and evicted quite a few, but I think they breed inside and our workshop, which is not sealed so well must have a whole colony.

 

So is there a way to get rid of them inside?

You'd have to completely eliminate their food source (smaller bugs). The problem with reptiles is when they are determined to be somewhere, they will find a way in no matter what.

No, I'm not exaggerating about the droppings.

 

On Shopee I see a lot of repellent advertised. Has anybody tried them, found them to work or not?

The downside is droppings the upside is that you might have less mozzies ?

They are a problem. I have had them drop off the ceiling on me in bed and I would hate to have that happen when my mouth is wide open snoring...

A quick internet search I found this statement - see if that works?

 

"Lizards despise the smell of Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oil – so use them to make a spray that you can spray around the baseboards of the house and on the outside of the house near the foundation. ... Then add 15 drops of each Eucalyptus or Peppermint and spray away."

They are not particularly effective, no. You'd have to get the entire place professionally fumigated. Might be worth speaking to Rentokill about your problem.

It seems they don't touch mozzies, spiders and roaches. That makes them pretty useless bug hunters for me. But I don't want to kill them.

Yes, there is. Find a bigger lizard or two snakes.

Please don't be upset when you develop Malaria, or Dengue. Killing animals that are partly useful is not what I want to see, sorry.
