Lizards are reptiles, the cold blooded animal, like crocodiles and snakes. They are small creatures with long tail that crawl on walls. They feed on small insects and flies. These lizards won’t be seen much during summer. They are mostly seen in your house during winter. Although the lizards look scary they are not dangerous. But still the lizards are able to get out the scream of your mouth. If you want to get rid of them here are some of the ways to do so:

Take the Help of Your Pet

The best way to get rid of these lizards is to employ your pet especially cat as they are curious by nature. Lizards become their source of fun. But this trick of yours can sometime backfire to you only as your pets may bring in these lizards to your house to have a meal of them later. So be careful of it. If you have pet snake, then you need not worry about the lizards as they will be eaten by the snake.

Get Rid of their Food Supply

The best source of food for lizards is the insects. If your house is free of them then you will soon say good bye to house lizards. All you need to do is to keep your house clean. Keep the grass and bushes of your lawn short to avoid insects. All this will kill the mosquitoes and moths that become the source of food for lizards.
