I recently ordered 2 qty 4-pack bait glue boards for Lizard control. After 4 weeks in the attic, there are numerous captured gecko lizards on the glue boards. I need help with two questions:
1. How often do I need to add bait to the glue boards? i.e, is there a “life” to a bait’s attraction capabilities?
2. Is it best to replace a glue board once a lizard is caught or is it better to let the glue board continue to catch the lizards? i.e. is a captured lizard a benefit or a deterrent to capturing more lizards on the same glue board?
THANKS in advance for your help…these pests are making the wife talk of selling the place, and we cannot afford to do it.
Our lizard traps will generally be active for 30-60 days. Now if the glue is still fairly tacky after 60 days and no lizards are caught, refresh the trap with more of the attractant pellets if you have some left.
Once more then 2 lizards are captured, its best to replace traps. Initially one trapped lizard will help attract more to the glue. But once its been dead for a day or two, the odor of it will work as a deterrent and tend to repel lizards. So don’t let them sit more than a day or two after they’re dead.
No doubt these traps work great and should help diminish the lizards and any roaches present.
