Default Skinks, Geckos, and Lizards

How do you get rid of these things? They leave droppings all over my sheet rock walls and floors in my garage.

Mouse traps with a live cricket on the floor and that sticky fly paper taped to the wall.
Works every time. It's a Southern thing. Don't question it just do it.

Those droppings were bugs before the lizards ate them. Keep that in mind.

With no lizards, geckos, or skinks you'll have lots o' bugs. Then you'll have to spray more and more pesticides. Then you'll get early on set cancer from all the pesticide build up.

Go natural...keep the lizards.

How big do those skinks get down in NoLa? The ones where I live in N. NJ only get to about 5" and only show when I lift a rock. I nver considered them a nuisance but I guess that would change if they showed up IN my house

It's a slimy a$$ed looking lizard. They eat roaches. Ever seen how big the roaches get in the south?
