I’m having an issue with what’s called “Jesus Christ” lizards. They are constantly on the pool deck and leaving droppings on the lawn furniture. Any suggestions?
The “Jesus Christ” lizard got its name from being able to “walk on water”. Its actually more of a “run” but they can move across the waters surface without sinking and can do so efficiently.
These are actually basilisk lizards and they can be found in several states. Commonly green or brown, they can be a nuisance. They’re known to be messy and in general fearless of people. Basilisks love hanging around Jacuzzi’s, pools or most any pond or lake.
Keep them away by sprinkling out PEST RID GRANULES and spraying with PEST AWAY.
First apply the granules at the rate of 1 lb per 250 sq/ft to mulch, flower beds and turf or dirt around the pool. Be sure to use them at your property border to keep them from entering the yard. By themselves, the granules won’t do much but once sprayed with the Pest Away, they’ll hold the odor for 2-3 months so you will really long protection when using both.

If you’re asking about the Pest Away spray; no hazard to people or pets. The product is made will all organic essential oils extracted from plants. So due to its concentration, reptiles are put off by it and avoid it. But the spray won’t harm them, people, birds, pets, etc. Not even plants so you can spray it anywhere.
