    Geckos.... This reminds me of a particular gecko that's residing under one of my chairs in my house.

    Originally, this gecko's pretty small. But as it started eating up ants (my house is officially 99.99% ants free! Yeah!) it became fatter and soon became a PR in my house. Rather fat, occasionally comes out to crawl. When we spot him, or his tail and we get up, somehow it will feel vibrations on the ground and dart under the sofa to hide.

    Its not deadly, more annoying. And its rather quiet (doesn't make dat stupid chriping sound) so unless it comes out to crawl, we dun really see it.

    Now... wondering shld I do something abt removing that annoying chap or just let it stay until it can upgrade from PR to Citizenship in my house....

    Not exactly, cos during the 3days your house will be full of poison fumes. Lastly after the 3days when you come back, open all the windows to air your house and sweep away all the dead stuff lying ard on the floor.

    You'd surprised, you place will be totally free from these pest for a long period.

    I've tried this method at one of my dad's rented units after the last tenants moved out and the house is full of termites. After the 3days, I found the walls stick full of dead termintes, 3 mountain heap of ants, ard 40+ cockroaches and ard 20 geckos + some many other different species insects.

    Need no troubles, boiling water, spray, etc...

    Actually geckos are quite tame pest... it do more good than harm like clearing ants, etc.

    However the only bad thing is it's urine which is quite poisonous.

    yeah~ lizards are just so cute! They help eat other insects! I don't mind having lizards in my house as they do not wreck havoc. Cockroaches on the other hand eats everything leaving holes in plastic bags, clothes, paper, etc..

    I leave the geckos alone. They eat other insects, so they are not bad. I just kill those roaches with insecticide. Actually, I think geckos are cute.

    I remember a story my brother told me. He got up in the middle of the night to drink water. He filled the cup and drank a few gulps... then he took a break and looked into the cup. There was this gecko under the water! He said it was breathing because bubbles were coming out of its nostrils!

    I don't think it's amphibious... but I think it can dive for a few minutes. I think the fella was hoping that my brother won't notice it.

    And they occasionally climb into my Momma's coffee pot (dat coffee's is still 1/2 pot full!!) and run around on the dining table?

    Wonder if there's a way to actually 'selectively capture' Geckos in just certain spots.

    I juz wanna do Gecko extermination in my kitchen (since they dun eat Roaches). Da chap under my Sofa can stay. All the rest can go.

    Saw one just now, big one and couldn't think of how to do it. So I boiled some water and threw at him... wasn't pleasant as it was in its death throes as it was being cooked to death.. Any other method to do it ah which is more 'humane'? Think got another baby one running around also
    learn about this old folk method ... place egg shells around their activity areas (corner & edges), it works for me .. not too sure of others ...

    Don't you know lizards are good luck? Why kill them? They help keep the house free of flies and mosquitoes.

    I'm insane? Well you can kiss my @ss. Until the gecko is able to pay rental for my property, it does NOT have the same right as me to be 'here' (wherever 'here' is to you).

    Don't like it? Go eat some mosquitos and make yourself useful... shoooo!

    The lizards in my house have evolved, they dun eat mosquitoes.
    There are no mosquitoes anyway.

    But the nightmare of them dropping onto you when you're asleep is more than enuff to get rid of them.
