Chase Lizards out of Your House
From My wiki
If you find an unwanted guest disturbing your life--a lizard--encourage it to leave without having to confront it.
- Remove any open or leftover food from around the house.
- Take note of where in the house you have seen the lizard: which rooms, which corners, under what furniture.
- Place peacock feathers in those lizard hideouts.
- Expose the hideouts by opening up crowded furniture, turning objects over, and making it difficult for the lizard to camouflage itself.
- Leave openings to the outdoors so the lizard can leave, but also watch to make sure unwanted creatures do not come in!
- Lizards are attracted to food sources and warmth in your house.
- Lizards eat insects. They are very good to have around your home.
- Geckos are active at night and climb walls and can climb windows, where they hunt insects that are attracted to light coming from inside a house, or a porch light. Don't EVER poison a lizard-- very few are dangerous. They are your friends, not your enemies.
- Gray wall lizards are very good for your garden. They eat small roaches and other bugs that are bad for your plants. They even eat small scorpions.
- Never kill these lizards, they are very beneficial creatures. They will not hurt you. Their bellies turn a turquoise blue or rust color when threatened.
- Horned lizards shoot blood from their eyes when scared.
- Lizards love a nice drink of water, so when you are putting water on your garden, be sure to allow a gentle stream near a wall so the lizards can climb closer and lap up some water with their pink tongues. It's a cute sight!
- Lizards are more active at night and make a squeaking noise.
- Approach lizards cautiously. If you alarm them they will go into hiding.
- If you catch a lizard by the tail, the tail may simply come off.
- When a lizard sheds or loses its tail, it is painful and takes a long time to regrow.
