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.
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.
HOW TO KEEP LIZARDS AWAY
The first thing you can do is to reduce lizard food. In fact our MAXXTHOR EC sprayed on the house siding and ground will not only kill the food their eating but will also irritate them enough to force them to move. Often times the Maxxthor is all you need to apply to get the lizards to leave.
For large areas, our 6 GALLON HOSE END is ideal for two reasons. It can saturate the homes siding and ground using nothing but your garden hose so the task is super fast. Second, you can remove the little black “deflector” on the tip and then it shoots a straight line spray that can reach as high as your garden hose can spray. Ideal for high places like eaves and overhangs where lizards like to rest.
HOUSE SAFE LIZARD SPRAY
For inside the home, treat around all windows and doors with our FS MP AEROSOL. True, it has an odor but Lizards hate it and the treatment will stop them from entering.
BEST SPRAY FOR LIZARDS
Now if you choose not to spray with the Maxthor listed above, the next best spray is our PEST AWAY REPELLENT.
It won’t kill anything but lizards hate its odor and will immediately leave the treated area. When used with the granules, treatments will last at least 2-3 months.
Mix 2 oz per gallon of water and apply it with a good pump sprayer like the one listed above. One mixed gallon will cover up to 800 sq/ft and you get 4 gallons of mixed spray per jug.
Lastly, set out some baited LIZARD GLUE TRAPS. These are made for use inside the home and can be placed along baseboards, under furniture, on countertops or anywhere lizards are foraging. These traps are very effective at catching and holding common nuisance lizards. 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 lizards, these boards can be used to trap out local populations.
