There's only two ways I've tried catching lizards

1) Using a disposable kitchen tissue towel and grabbing the lizard

2) Using the sticky mat

The sticky mat is the least messy coz you don't have to worry about the lizard tail breaking off or the lizard escaping from the tissue if you don't hold it tight enough.

Look at it this way - it's either eeky lizard on sticky mat or s*** on your walls :) Personally, it's more cost and time effective to use a sticky mat to trap the lizard. I hate it especially when they sneak into the kitchen cupboards and live among the plates!

I'm out of the sticky mats, will be going to the hardware shop this weekend. Will post a pic when I get it.

This is the lizard trap I used. It's $3 per pack for 4 sticky mats.

Wife & MIL see lizards as if "big enemy". Once spotted, this lizard sure die, no way to escape.

- Spray bygone until lizard blurr blurr, fold up used news papers & www

- Hide at small corner, then pour hot water....

- In kunpong time, I used to catch lizards with a coconut-leave stick, one end tie a movable knot, then slowly move the knot to front and talak, wow...long time never use this skill already. Very effective method to catch not to deter.

Hahaha! This lizard business is so funny. Suddenly there are so many interesting ways to catch / kill them.

eiffel,

I'm amazed that the lizard in your house can "challenge" you!! What about using traps with poison? Like those for cockroaches?

i am the best lizard trap in the house...the 3 ladies (wife and twin daughters) in my house will scream, i will be dispatch to the scene and catch them by hand: fat , skinny, small I catch before....after that, I invite them to our "Wet & Wild" aka toilet bowl...

Seriously, they do come out in the night for water so if you tend to dry your dishes overnight, try to wipe clean and keep before you sleep. Lizards will always come and go...they are better than the roaches....
