Here are questions related to Natural Repellents for Lizards.
A race runner lizard has taken up residence in the soil of one of my flower beds. One of your posted answers suggested mothballs and eliminating food supply, ie. bugs. So this morning I cut down my marigold bushes, sprayed the beds with insecticide and put out mothballs in pots and along the perimeter of the flower bed.
Around noon I saw the lizard climbing the fence. It then walked along the middle support to another section of the fence. Then it went down the fence, across a plywood divider and into the bed it had been sited in originally. This maneuver allowed it to avoid the heaviest concentration of mothballs.
How do I get rid of this thing? I'm ready to pour bleach over the entire bed!

Beth, I guarantee your grandchild will not be able to catch your lizard!!! My husband is a biologist who frequently traps animals of all types for research (then releases them unharmed!). Even he has problems catching lizards. He sneaks up on them with a little string noose on a fishing pole and they still outsmart him!
As for lizard droppings, there are far worse things in your yard than lizard droppings that your grandchild will definitely find no matter how careful you are: Animal feces from rats & mice (both can carry several diseases easily transferable to humans), ants-can have very painful bites, many other insects-dung beetles who love to roll and eat dung, centipedes and millipedes-also very painful bites, spiders-painful and worse bites, etc. In addition to possible bites, all of these insects and animals drop feces wherever they are and your entire yard is fair game for them.
I hope that you will consider letting your lizard live as she or he is a very pretty animal and an excellent pest controller in your yard!
Does anyone know of any natural lizard repellents? Please suggest.

Hi, I'm from Pakistan. Lizards are very common problem here. It is said here that if we use peacock feather where the lizards used to come from, they will go away. I have tried and it works for me. You should try it too, hopefully it works for you too.
We have too many lizards that somehow get in the lanai through crevices we have yet to find. Is there anything natural that will repel them? I am sick of cleaning up after pets I never wanted, it's gross.
