Lizard Removal Strategies
Lizards are a species of reptile most commonly found in many parts of the southeastern and southwestern United States. Although they feed off of pesky insects, lizards can also prove quite a nuisance when they invade your yard, garage, or even your house. Lizards have sticky feet that they use for climbing up walls and trees. Because of their small size, if there are any gaps in your walls, lizards can easily climb through and enter into your home. As they are very quick, it can be difficult, and dangerous to the lizards, to try and catch them on your own.

Dangers of Lizard Infestation
Lizards can bite if the opportunity presents, and most reported inquiries are the result of rough handling. Otherwise, lizards do not go out of their way to harm humans. Though some species are venomous, swift medical attention after bites keeps mortality rates low enough to be negligible. Lizards are not known for damaging manmade structures and are actually beneficial for ecosystems. The animals are largely considered pests due to their intimidating appearance and the burrowing habits of specific species, which contribute to the destruction of expensive landscaping.
Humane Lizard Removal & Control Strategies
Entry into property
Given food scarcity, lizards will wander into residential areas looking for sustenance. However, the reptiles prefer the outdoors where food and water are abundant. People that do experience lizard infestations often live in areas with ideal conditions, such as those with abundant flies and grasshoppers or fruit- and flower-bearing plants. Lands with ample cover from the elements and predators attract the creatures, as well.
Trapping & Removal
Various lizards are protected by state and federal law. As such, professional advice and action is always the best option when dealing with the unpredictable reptiles. With extensive backgrounds in lizard removal, Trutech experts can eliminate threats to property owners legally, safely, and humanely. Iguanas are invasive species and not protected.
Prevention & Exclusion
Prevent lizards from invading structures by finding holes in building exteriors and sealing them with wire mesh or caulk. Common entrance holes pop up around ventilation systems, piping, and electrical service entrances. Remove possible nesting sites by cleaning debris from surrounding properties. Potential cover that should be removed includes lumber and crates, as well as lawn-care equipment, boxes, and rocks.
Frequently Asked Questions
If lizards are getting in the house, we would look for entry points and exclude the openings. We would then set traps around the perimeter of the home. In addition to trapping, we will apply a pesticide to the exterior to control the lizard’s food source. Typically it takes 1-3 weeks to trap the majority of the geckos in the house.
As far as outside, the lizards can be deterred. We can keep them away from the house and minimize activity in yards with the application of pesticide around those areas and with traps. Once the initial population is under control, we recommend monthly visits to check traps and apply a food source control to keep the lizards out of the house.
