Small lizards are common pests in houses and buildings that are surrounded by vegetation or are close to areas of dense (sometimes shaded) 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 keeping doors and windows closed or screened. Reducing the vegetation around the house and limiting outdoor lights at night may also be helpful. In fact, a good insect supply is the main reason they’re choosing your home for a nest site.
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.
