Lizards are not something we never expect to see in our homes. If anything, if there is one running around the house, it is more than likely the animal of the family. For a number of people though, these lizards are nothing more than uninvited guests. You will see them rushing to the floor, the walls, the ceiling, and maybe even hear them inside the walls or ceiling. If there is good news to all this, it is that these geckos are harmless.
The fear you might feel around them is yours. If you are not intimidated by their appearance or this lizard species in general, you might consider keeping a pet. We do not suggest that you do this! Like many lizards, the lizard is very well maintained. You will need to make a number of purchases and work hard to maintain the proper environment for the lizard. Most people are not willing to give this level of commitment.
Domestic lizards are well known for entering homes through holes or cracks. If you own a house and can visually see cracks or holes around the perimeter of your house, the geckos can do it too. They are very intelligent when it comes to finding entrances to our homes. Once inside, if they find a new source of food, and they do it often, they will not leave alone. You will need to take some form of action to solve the problem.
These little creatures can easily get into cracks in the foundations or holes in the side of your house. Even if the space seems too small, it is really not the case. House lizards can also enter your home through the cracks around your windows. If you see one on the wall or ceiling, near one of your windows, you should inspect the area around the window very closely.
If you do not take the time to seal or repair the holes, and allow them to live in your house, the problem will not go away. There are parts of the world where landowners simply ignore them. This is because they are very effective when it comes to controlling the population of other insects.
This is not a good reason to ignore the problem. You replace one parasite with another. While a particular insect might decrease in number, the home lizard population will surely increase over time. So, you want to get rid of them. If you have other pets, especially a dog or cat, they will probably run after the lizards in your house. Keep your house clean and look in different lizard and flypaper repellents to get rid of the lizards of the house already in your home.
