LIZARD CONTROL


 

Lizards are opportunistic. Gardens, ponds and streams allow populations to prosper. Sprinkler systems will deliver enough water to keep any lizard happy and this leads to many taking up residence along outside foundation walls. Most species of lizards in North America are harmless and eat small insects. Vegetation such as shrubs and flowers are excellent nesting areas for many types. These same plants can become a target for lizards that will find them to be a great source of water during dry spells or in arid regions when water is sparse.

Here is a short clip of the common Chameleon found in many regions of the world.



Here is another Chameleon but this one turns brown.



LIZARD CONTROL

Controlling lizards is easy. First you should take away their food by doing a little pest control around the house. Next you should set out some repellent granules or repellent spray and lastly, consider setting out lizard traps if they’re inside the home.

 

CONTROL LIZARD FOOD 

So the first thing that will help is to reduce lizard food. In fact a good insect supply is no doubt the main reason they’re choosing your home for a nest site.

Pump SprayerViper CypermethrinTo reduce lizard food, treat the foundation and landscape around your buildings. The best product for this is CYPERMETHRIN. It will provide a quick knockdown and control of any insect. In many cases, spraying every 1-2 months around your home will force any nuisance lizards away with nothing further needed. Apply the Cypermethrin with one of our PUMP SPRAYERS.

HOUSE SAFE SPRAY TO KILL LIZARD FOOD

D-Force AerosolFor inside the home insect control, apply DFORCE AEROSOL. It comes with a crack and crevice tip for getting the treatment deep into voids where insects and lizards hide. The treatment will kill off unwanted insects which serve as food and the treatment will also irritate lizards so they won’t want to stay in treated areas.

PLANT SAFE SPRAY TO KILL LIZARD FOOD

BifenSince lizards will many times take up residence in potted plants where insects are living, it’s important to kill the lizard food. As explained above, this will many times cause the lizards to move away. A good plant safe spray is BIFEN IT. It mixes with water easily and all you need to do is add some to your watering can used for watering these plants. Mix up 1/2 oz per gallon of water and simply use the mixture in the potted plants. As the mixture filters down through the soil, any insects will be killed. Within a day or two, any lizards living in the plants will figure out there is no more food around and will migrate away.

INSECT REPELLENT SPRAY TO CHASE AWAY LIZARD FOOD

Now if you’d rather not kill any of the insects, apply an insect repellent. These will not chase away any insects that are nesting; for anything nesting like roaches or ants, you’ll have to use one of the kill sprays listed above. But for pests that are migrating through your yard or garden, either of the following repellents can be used to minimize their visits. This in turn will cause the lizards to forage elsewhere for food.

NBS Paint AdditiveThe first is a concentrate that like the Cypermethrin, can be mixed with water and safely sprayed anywhere insects might be active. NBS can even be added to paint or stain so you can get long lasting insect repellent added to your homes exterior finish.

NBS Paint AdditiveNBS Repellent:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/exempt/additive/nbs-paint-additive-16-oz

 

Mosquito Repellent RTSAnd for the landscape, MOSQUITO GNAT FLEA REPELLENT is a concentrate that comes packaged with it’s own hose end sprayer. Like the NBS, it won’t kill anything. Just hook it up to your garden hose and spray it anywhere you want to repel insects.

APPLY LIZARD CONTROL REPELLENTS

Next apply lizard repellents. The best lizard repellent is made from all natural, low impact actives but lizards like garlic, capsaicin and other plant oils. It comes in both granules and spray. Lizards really hate the odor and will stay away from where it’s applied.

Pest Rid GranulesIf you have ground dwelling lizards, first apply some PEST RID GRANULES. Common areas to treat include flower beds, mulch islands, pine straw and any place you see lizards on the ground.

Pest Rid GranulesPest Rid Granules: http://www.bugspraycart.com/exempt/granule/pest-rid-exempt-granules-2-pound

 

Pest Rid LiquidNext spray over the top with PEST RID SPRAY. Be sure to spray the sides of the home too, especially behind gutters, downspouts, window shutters, electric boxes and other areas you know lizards like to hide. Pest Rid treatments will last at least a few weeks and once the lizards are gone, treatments will remain effective for up to two months.

LIZARD CONTROL GLUE TRAPS

Scorpion/Insect TrapsLastly, set out some roach scented LIZARD GLUE TRAPS. These are ideal for inside the home and can be placed along baseboards, under furniture, on countertops or any place where you have seen lizards foraging. These traps are very effective at catching and holding most common nuisance lizards. The roach pheromones are in the form of small pills which are simply dropped onto the glue trap. Undetectable by people but quickly found by foraging lizards, these boards can be used to trap out local populations.

OUTSIDE LIZARD TRAPIf you have large lizards or need to trap outside, get the OUTSIDE GLUE TRAP. These traps are commonly used for snakes and small animals but work great on lizards up to 1.5 feet long. They are rain proof and can be used in the garden, flower beds, around the homes foundation as well as inside. They are quite sturdy and will last many years too.

LIZARD CONTROL NETTING

In the yard, lizards can do a lot of damage to plants. This can happen when they’re either feeding on or extracting water from plants growing in the yard. You can try spraying the plants with the Pest Rid listed above and this should keep them away. It won’t hurt the plant and it can be used as frequently as is needed. But sometimes this is not enough.

NettingSo if you’ve tried the Pest Rid on a plant that’s being targeted but the lizards won’t leave, you’ll need to protect the targeted plants with some ANIMAL/LIZARD NETTING. This fine mesh plastic is annoying to lizards when they try to chew through it. The plastic will get in their teeth and though it won’t present any hazard to them, it will prevent them from being able to properly chew. This annoyance is more than enough to get them to forage elsewhere. The netting is easy to apply and install and will last a long time. Be sure to place it around any plant you want to protect and replace it annually or as needed. Since the need for water can become a matter of survival, most any plant can become a target of thirsty lizards. Animal/Lizard Netting can prove to be well worth the time and cost when trying to save precious plants from these foraging pests.

Lizards are a pest that will find their way into yards which have an abundant supply of insect pests. They like to live close to their food and once they start nesting in your yard, it’s only a matter of time before they start coming inside. If you’re seeing lizards around the yard, treat foundations and landscape with Cypermethrin to take away their food. The aerosol Dforce is better suited for cracks and crevices where lizards and their food may be hiding. Next apply some Pest Rid repellent. In most cases, this combination of sprays will chase lizards away and keep them off your property.

My husband and I have a serious infestation of some type of ugly lizards. They are see through (you can see their organs) and they have black eyes. Some of them are brown but all of their tails are spotted and some of them even have little horns on the back of their heads. UGH!!! We cannot get rid of them! Yes we live on the water and we have a sprinkler system, but we have sprayed insect repellant and DEMON trying to kill their food source to no avail!! NOW…….they are getting in the house every where! I cannot handle this as I am deathly afraid of them! PLEASE HELP!

I am the owner of a two story motel that has offices, rooms, laundry store and garden areas. Sometimes I see small baby lizard in any of the garden, laundry and storages areas. Can you please let me know how to stop them from developing and coming into other areas? Your help by guiding the follow-up preventive action plans in place will be highly useful to maintain my all areas and keep them neat and clean. Thanks.

I have always seen the small lizards running around and up the sides of the houses. They’ve never bothered me. Recently I have seen large Skink lizards with no tail. Scary. Thanks for the information. I will surly try your suggestions.

I forgot to ask if this also gets rid of ants. I have a major problem.

I HAVE THIS UNGODLY PROBLEM WITH THESE VERY UGLY TRANSLUCENT LIZARDS THAT LIVE ON THE BRICK OUTSIDE MY HOME. I WAS JUST OUTSIDE WATERING MY FLOWERING PLANTS IN POTS AND SAW TWO (2) RUN OUT FROM THEM. THEY ARE SOOOOO UGLY LOOKING I CANNOT STAND THEM. WE NEVER HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THESE UNTIL ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. I STARTED NOTICING MY BEAUTIFUL FLOWERING PLANTS IN MY POTS START TO DIE WITHIN A FEW DAYS. ARE THE PRODUCTS (SPRAYS) O.K. TO APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE PLANTS IN MY POTS OR JUST ON THE CONCRETE AND GROUND AROUND THEM??????? I FEEL AFTER READING ABOVE IT IS DUE TO THEM FEEDING OFF OF A HUGE ANT POPULATION. WE HAVE HAD THEM BAD FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS AS WELL. I AM DEFINITELY GOING TO PURCHASE SOME OF THE PRODUCTS LISTED ABOVE AND PRAY THEY REALLY WORK AND WELL!!!!

What if you have lizards coming in through the fireplace? Can you spray or place products there if eventually you will use the fireplace? Will it cause fumes that will harm if burned off? Can there be a nest, because I have seen more than one at a time in the home near the fireplace? What do you suggest for this problem?

I noticed lizards around my front and patio door areas. Especially at night. What can I use to get rid of them so they won’t come in the house when you open doors to go outside or inside the house?

We recently moved into an apartment and after about a month realized that there are little clear lizards which come out every night when the porch light comes on. I absolutely hate lizards. We live upstairs so when I have to come home after dark I have the hardest time coming upstairs to get in the house because the lizards are on the ceiling and sides of the walls. It doesn’t seem like the Pest Rid Granules will work since we don’t have a yard but I am purchasing the Cypermethrin and Pest Rid Spray and hoping they will work. I found one in the apartment last night that came in from the patio when I opened the door to let the dog go out there about a week ago. Unfortunately my husband wasn’t home so I was forced to kill it myself. Fortunately it was a baby so it was little but I don’t like them no matter how big or small they are. I will come back and post how the products work once we’ve been using them for a couple of weeks. I am hoping that when it gets cold they will go away.

Hello,

We just moved into our new home in Orange County and we’re very excited to use our backyard. However, we noticed there are so many black lizards outside. We have a Koi pond and a small pool. We also have hydrangeas that look like they’re dying and I have seen couple of lizards around them. Please let me know what treatments I need to use to get rid of these lizards? Thanks.
