Lizards are generally considered beneficial creatures as they help control populations of insects and other pests. However, if you have a specific issue with lizards in your home or certain areas where their presence is undesirable, there are some steps you can take to address the situation. It’s important to note that most lizard species are protected and it is recommended to use humane methods to deal with them. Here are some suggestions for lizard pest control:
Exclusion: The first step is to seal off any entry points through which lizards are entering your home or targeted areas. Inspect doors, windows, and cracks in walls for gaps or openings and seal them using weatherstripping, caulk, or mesh screens.
Habitat modification: Lizards are attracted to environments that provide them with food and shelter. To make your property less appealing to lizards, consider reducing insect populations, which are their main food source. Use insect screens on windows and doors, fix any gaps or cracks that insects can use to enter your home, and maintain proper sanitation to reduce potential food sources.
