my husband asked me if i need a 3M Sticky pad/board thingy on the kitchen/dining wall to stick my notices/reminder slips and i told him of my concern about waking up to a fat lizard beside my notices!

I dun think lizard is a pest, they are quite useful to reduce insect like ants in your house. The only problem is the dropping....

You have to get rid of these pest immediately else it will get worst. Pest I believe can sense fear and when you kill one , the rest will feel it. I use a wrap newspaper and wack it like a bat, splash hotwater ( very effective) and lizard trap ( Daiso cheap n good )

have you tried natural predators? i.e. dogs, cats

i have a dog at home, and we very rarely see cockroaches or lizard. i read somewhere that house pets act as deterrant. :)

agreed, if they can just do it outside the house, i will leave them alone ... but :curse:

i'm staying at the Top floor of a 33 yo flat .... i can easliy catch 3 to 4 a day .....

- if they are outside the house - i will spray water at them till they drop from the ceiling ..then 8|

- if they are inside the house and i cannot reach them ... throw newspaper or small item toward them, they will jump/drop from the ceiling .. then 8|

:good:

I hate Lizards, especially with the HDB lightning just outside my house gate, 2 fat lizards will always waiting for me every night...argh. Always ask my neighbour to catch for me...keke. Finally (touch wood) the Lizards are gone for at least a month after hubby bought the "RIDSECT LIZARD REPELLENT" from NTUC and the Lizards seems to disppear, now I don't have phobia with Lizard outside my house (hope it don't appear again). Hubby spary at the main gate one big round but it will have white stain so advise to spary on the wall. Also when hubby said a lizard, he tried to spray and the lizard escape quite fast..keke. You can try to use it, hopefully it is effective too. The cap is yellow in color and bottle is green with few lizards picture.

Anybody successfully used double sided tape to trap lizard? Are double sided tape strong enough to stick the lizard? Example, place 2 strips of tape in the path where they usually travel, 2 strip to provide more stickiness. Can work?

Get a pet. My housecat is good with catching roaches and all. Lizards seem to disappear whenever there's a pet in the house.

usually they are attracted by food...just throw leftovers food away or keep in fridge.

closing windows at night helps alot.

Lizards like the behind of bookcase, wall painting etc. As long as there is a gap between the wall and a panel, they feel safe there, you cannot see them but when u are too near, they will spring a surprise on you by 'jumping' out. Is there something/chemical/spray we can put/paint/ apply behind these panel to discourage lizards.

Lizards aren't classified as pests by the pest control professionals. However, their presence could wreak havoc becox of the noice & the "sourvenirs" they leave on the walls & furnishings!!

Thus far, all those lizard repellants in the commercial market do not work well.

Hey merry xmas to u :)

My flats have lizards on & off.

And recently, many babies... maybe the lizards like to come to our flat & lay eggs :P

When I was a kid, the lizards lay eggs inside the hollow of the bamboo pole & when my mother brought down the bamboo pole from the stell hangers attached to the ceiling, the eggs rolled out! Yukks!!!

i think lizards eat cockroaches and some other pests.

So when u have a lizard problem, u would probably have a lot of other hidden pests. Or u have fruits at altar attracting lizards...

When i was doing renovation, there were tons of cockroach eggs behind kitchen cabinets and there were quite a few very very fat lizards. Now that we got rid of the eggs and cockroaches, lizards are no longer seen.

Alternatively u can get the glue for catching rats, stick some biscuit crumbs on it and u would be able to catch some lizards. This can control but cannot exterminate.

Cheers!

I also have that idea that my flat must have many pests hidden inside the trunkings becox those lizards always squeeze thru those electrical trunkings. :)

But when we looked over, we have a very clean flat - no ants, no flies :P Becox the lizards helped us to clear them all :) However, I did notice those really tiny, black insects moving in my toilets, in between tile cracks - what r those?

There is this gray lizard that stays in my money plant which I placed at the lift lobby. But lately, our friend disppeared, duno what happened. Maybe migrated?

We saw cockroaches 2x when staying in our flat - one was the American type that flies around. EEEEEks! And I was told that they stink. yuks!

lizards are immune to insecticide...i wonder why.

once a lizard fell into the kitchen sink, no matter how much i spray, the lizard still bo chup the insecticide.

the only thing is that the insecticide made the sink slippery, so the lizard could not run out.

cockroaches are disgusting... my block did fumigation not long ago, so many dead bodies lying around all over the place. The cockroaches also like to lay eggs along the walls of the rubbish chute. I spotted and removed 2 eggs already, but the cockroach laid them again, at the same spot some more...... argghh... pek chek...

The home remedy of using cracked eggshells will work - tried and tested.

It is the lizards prey/predatory instinct that when they smell/see the eggshells, they will avoid the area as they know they will be fodder for the chicken.

After carefully cracking the eggs for cooking (preferably in halves), place the eggshells around the areas where you know there will be lizards crawling about (near windows, corners, etc).

Observe for the next few days if any activity.

You should leave the eggshells there for 1 week.

It is also true that lizards prey on mozzies although not quite with the same efficiency with your insect sprays.
