anyone can advise on how to get rid of lizards?
and how to prevent them from crawling into the house?
and one is permanent resident in one of the room.
until now still didn't manage to catch it.
i do have those lizard trap but doesn't seems to work.
the panel outside the windows are filled with lizard poo.. irritating.
not sure if it's due to low floor.
my hubby will overturn the house just to catch one lizard then either throw out of the window or flush down the toilet bowl. hehe
tok about low floor.. veri er xin .
there's a big field in front, at times will have a flop of flying ants fly inside.
even grasshopper of a finger size also have.. this i even have to use my fishing net to capture then release outside my door.
recent insect veri weird looking also a finger long, like 2 pcs of leaf stick together. *faint*
what I did was to use the cockroach house trap (the want which is white in colour with some sticky glue inside the house - can get from basar malam). I'll leave some biscuits or titbits in it and put it at a dark corner.
Do not use the red type of house (the one that come with some "food") that you can buy from supermarket. I tried it a few times and it doesn't work at all. Maybe the lizards do not like the food provided or the sticky glue is not sticky enough.
So far it works for my office and home. Manage to catch 1 lizard within 3 days whenever I leave the trap.
Must kill the BIG ones... then less small ones in future...
I DIY... double-sided tape on wooden chopsticks... sure stick the lizard!
Use hot water once 2... BIG lizard... still won't die after that...
Was catching this BIG cockcroach just now... dont know came from where... my dear daughter hiding in her bedroom... spray won't die... use the electric racket... zap also won't die... in the end.. my DW roll newspaper baton... smashed it DEAD... FIERCE woman! haha..
Cos' I scared of FLYING cockcroach! haha
Try getting the lizard spray from Giant or some NTUC.
It does not kill the lizard but its supposed to prevent the lizard from getting in meaning you have to spray all around the outside of windows, doors etc so that they wont b able to get in cos slippery to them hahaha. Sounds funny but it does work. The con is you will need a few cans in order to spray the whole house.
haha same.. i can not tahan insects in my house also ,somemore i am staying at 4th floor.... the house already got many many ants when i moved in.. so no choice got to start chasing them away.
i use pest control chalk at various entry point to eliminate ants.. as for cockroaches.. i use the bait station...
today just went to home fix shop... i saw a device that stated it's effectively chasing away " rats, cockroaches, lizards, spiders, ants, moths, and mosquito... just have to plug it and switch on 24 hours... it's high frequency of ultrasonic/ultrasound wave that is harmless to human but insects can not take that kind of frequency. It cost about $20.... very tempting to buy ,/ but hubby not allow, saying baby still in stomach , wait until baby come out then see how. -.-"
cockroach is my number one killer.... i dont even dare to see its dead bodies... broken legs or wings... lolz..
lizards actually still not so bad, it comes to our house means our house got insects for it to eat....so they help to eliminate small insects in our house
ants/cockroaches they come because of food... so these are harder to control,
nowadays lizards are getting smarter, i just on the kitchen light and saw a lizard crawling to my trap direction, i thot it will go into the trap but it crawl to the top part to avoid the trap and down again. Like that how to catch them....
I stay at high foor, I still have lizard once in a while.
There are very good and hiding, like ninja.

Your forgot there is the lift. They can take the lift, then climb out and wait for you to open the door or window then they climb in...hee hee...if they really climb from ground floor...I think you will see loads of dead lizard at your doorstep by the time they reach the higher level.
