Do you have tiny, unwanted, gecko guests in your home? One sign is their black/brown droppings with a white tip. An even clearer sign is if you see one crawling up your wall! The following will assist in getting rid of them:-
A. Household Solutions
Geckos can be good for bug control, but sometimes you just need them out of your home. You can use a variety of products you may already have to get rid of them:
1. If you have eggshells, you can place them around your home to scare off geckos.
2. If you have mothballs, you can place them around to repel geckos.
3. If you have coffee and tobacco, you can make a gecko poison.
4. If you have garlic cloves, you can use them to repel geckos with the odor.
5. If you have onions, cut some up to keep geckos at bay.
6. If you have cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce, you can make a homemade pepper spray.
B. Preventing Geckos from moving into your house
1Render your home inhospitable to geckos. Geckos like warmth, water, and places to hide. You can do several things to make sure your home doesn’t offer these amenities.
2 Render your backyard inhospitable to geckos. Your backyard can be a welcome mat to your home if geckos are drawn there by their creature comforts: water, insects, and cover.
3 Ensure your home is sealed. Geckos can squeeze their little scaly bodies into small crevices and holes, so make sure your home is well sealed.
C Targeting Geckos’ food source
1 Discourage mosquitos, gnats, and flies. These pests love stagnant water because they thrive in it.
2 Repel ants.
3 Eradicate fruit flies.
4 Suffocate moths. Moths thrive in humid conditions.
5 Deter roaches. Roaches like to eat many things.
6 Prevent spiders from entering/being in the house.
7 Curtail crickets. Crickets are a popular food source for geckos.
