How Do I Kill House Lizards?

Question: How do I kill house lizards?

ANSWER: Small lizards are common pests in houses and buildings that are surrounded by vegetation or close to areas of dense plants. They are pests simply by their presence indoors. They do not live in or infest houses, but come in from surrounding vegetation to find insects (food).

Usually they are following the insects that are attracted to outdoor lights, which often attract moths and many other insects. Of course, they don’t bite people or animals, and would eventually move out of the house, except for those that get lost indoors.

The best control strategy is to keep them out by making sure doors and windows closed or screened. Reducing the vegetation around the house and limiting outdoor lights at night may also be helpful.

Contact us and ask to have an Orkin Pest Specialist come to your home and develop a customized treatment plan to take care of the lizards’ food source, the insects flying or crawling around your home. Once the food sources are gone, the lizards will be too.
