Anoles are opportunistic Anoles. Gardens, ponds and streams allow populations to prosper. Sprinkler systems will deliver enough water to keep any anole happy and this leads to many taking up residence along outside foundation walls. Most species of Anoles 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 anoles 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 Anole found in many regions of the world.
Here is another Anole but this one turns brown.
Controlling Anoles is easy. First take away their food by doing a little pest control around the house. Next you spray and lastly, consider setting out Anole traps if they’re inside the home.
HOW TO KEEP ANOLES AWAY
The first thing you can do is to reduce Anole food. In fact a good insect supply is the main reason they’re choosing your home for a nest site.
To reduce Anole food, treat the foundation and landscape around your buildings. The best product for this is MAXXTHOR EC.
It will both kill insects quickly and since Anole Lizards don’t like it, they tend to stay off treated surfaces where its been sprayed.
In many cases, spraying every 1-2 months around your home will force nuisance Anoles to leave.
Be sue to spray at the rate of 1 oz per gallon of water. Coat the foundation, around windows, rain gutters, behind down spouts, around air conditioning units, where pipes enter and exit the home, in flower beds and more. Maxxthor can be safely applied to turf, plants and structures.
ANOLE PEST AWAY SPRAY
If you prefer to just chase the Anoles away, get our PEST AWAY SPRAY.
Pest Away is made with all natural organic essential oils and gets mixed with water. It won’t harm wildlife, insects, birds, pets, etc. but due to it being so concentrated, it makes lizards “wary” of treated areas.
The feeling of being uneasy and alarmed about the area/treated plants will make them not want to rest where its been applied. This makes Pest Away a great way to naturally chase away unwanted pesky reptiles like lizards and snakes.
Our 8 oz jar mixes 2 oz per gallon of water and will treat up to 500 sq/ft of plants when treating for deer control.
Lastly, set out some baited ANOLE GLUE TRAPS. These are made for use inside the home and can be placed along baseboards, under furniture, on countertops or anywhere Anoles are foraging. These traps are very effective at catching and holding common nuisance Anoles. They include a wide range of insect pheromones in the form of small pellets which are simply dropped onto the glue trap prior to setting the traps out. Undetectable by people but quickly found by foraging Anoles, these boards can be used to trap out local populations.
