How to stop lizards visiting

Some of you like them…

some of you don’t.


Lizard control summed up

Keep your home free from what they eat, and they will go next door or elsewhere. They eat ants, insects, all those house pests you spray for regularly.

Oh…you don’t spray regularly? Could that be why you have lizards?


Use glue traps where you see them scurry, with the glue trap size bigger than the lizards you are seeing. To release them from the trap ( if you didn’t put the trap and critter in a sealed plastic bag and trash it), pour vegetable oil on the glue and then do what you want with the lizard. Purchase glue traps locally.


You can purchase netting locally to put over those plants that they feed on to get water.


  • Organic home made remedies include spray mixtures of water, Cayenne pepper, garlic, and soap.
  • Commercial repellents can be purchased to spray and thus build a chemical barrier or give them a tasting opportunity that they don’t like. We must say it again. If you remove all the little crawling and flying pests in your house, that is your best defense against lizards
  • There is also a product from India called Laximen Rekka chaulk that when you draw a line on the floor, the lizards will not cross, so we are told.

A professional trapper may be what you need to control and remove them from your area.
