HOUSE LIZARDS

The Pest : House Lizards – Geckos
Geckos are insect-eating lizards found in almost every household in this part of the world. Geckos have pads on its toes that enable it to cling even to smooth surfaces or stay inverted on the ceiling. These pads consist of rows of plates covered with thousands of microscopic hook-like projections that latch into any minute surface irregularity.

The Threat : While geckos can be considered beneficial for their insect-consuming diet, they can become a pest themselves. Gecko faeces are definitely greater in volume than cockroach faeces, and tend to smear a bit more. Their droppings soil the walls and contaminate expose food. They love to nest inside drawers and their eggs are often found in undergarments.
