Insecticide For Wall Gecko

| |

Wall geckos are a common type of reptile that can be found in many homes and buildings throughout the world. These lizards have the ability to jump great distances, making them hard to catch when they are inside a building. They also have a coating on their skin that makes them difficult to poison with insecticides. However, there are some insecticides that can effectively kill these lizards if used properly.

When using an insecticide for wall geckos you will want to make sure that you purchase one that contains cypermethrin or pyrethroid as an active ingredient. These are two types of chemicals that work well against lizards and insects. You should also be sure that the product contains food-grade diatomaceous earth as an ingredient in order to help kill any eggs or larvae present in your house before they hatch into adults later on down the road.

You should only apply this type of product when it is safe for humans and pets around your home, which means before bedtime or during other times when no one is present inside your house (or apartment building). You should also ensure that all pets have been removed from the area being treated so they don’t ingest any toxic fumes while roaming free around your living space during treatment time.

Identification

Before you can move forward with a treatment approach, it is important to identify and be certain that you are dealing with a Gecko. Misidentification can lead to using the wrong treatment method, which could cost you money and time as a result.

  • Geckos look and behave very similarly to your average lizard because a gecko is classified as a type of lizard. This means that all geckos are lizards but not all lizards are geckos.
  • Geckos have a scaly skin, and long tails that can detach and regrow and can change color to blend with their surroundings.
  • The main difference between a common lizard and a common house gecko is that geckos do not have eyelids, therefore they cannot blink and have to lick their eye to clean them.
  • Geckos have broad toes that are sticky on the ends which allow them to crawl up walls and cling to surfaces.
  • Another big difference between geckos and lizards is geckos have a voice and can be noisy, making chirping-type noises to communicate.

Do geckos carry diseases?

Yes, they can carry salmonella. As a matter of fact, they are known carriers of this bacteria. Salmonella is found in their system and can cause illness in humans if ingested.

Salmonella is a type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning. When you eat or drink something that has been contaminated with salmonella, it can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within 12 to 72 hours.

How long can a gecko live in your house?

Geckos are small lizards that can be found in your house. They can live for 7 years, and grow to a length of between 7.5–15 cm (3–6 in). Geckos are attracted to lights and make a characteristic chirping sound as they search for insects around porch lights or other buildings where they may find prey. These nocturnal creatures have pointed snouts with vertical pupils, which gives them excellent night vision. Geckos have five toes on each foot that allow them to climb smooth surfaces such as walls or windowsills easily; they also use their tail as an adhesive when climbing up walls or along ceilings. The coloration of geckos varies greatly depending on the species; some are brightly colored while others are more muted shades like grey or brownish green.

What can I use to kill the Wall gecko in my house?

Garlic and salt remedy: Research has it that blending garlic together with salt helps to get rid of these household pests. Spread this mixture on areas you see these reptiles. The smell will get rid of the wall geckos.

You can also use this method to repel geckos from your house or any other place that they are living in. The best part is, this spray is safe to use around children and pets because it has no harmful side effects. Just make sure you don’t breathe in too much when using it because it may cause an allergic reaction for some people as well as asthma attacks for others who suffer from respiratory problems like asthma or allergies themselves (should not be used by anyone with chronic heart disease).

What can I spray to keep geckos away?

  • Spray the mixture directly onto the areas you see these reptiles.
  • The smell will get rid of them within days, but it is best to use this remedy regularly so that they do not come back.
  • You can also use garlic and salt as a repellent against geckos.
  • Mix 1 cup of salt and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder into one gallon of water in a spray bottle, then spray around baseboards, walls, and corners where they may be hiding during the day or nighttime hours.

How to get rid of wall gecko permanently

To treat Geckos invading your house, you will need to address the issue of insects. Geckos are around for a reason and it usually is because you have a heavy influx of insects in your yard and around your home. Reducing the insect population will reduce the activity and presence of geckos, essentially serving as an indirect gecko repellent or deterrent.

When mixing and spraying insecticides, make sure you read the label carefully and have on the proper PPE (personal protective equipment) in the form of gloves, safety glasses, and a safety mask.

Step 1 – Apply Bifen LP Granules

Using A Spreader

Bifen LP is a great granular insecticide that will kill a long list of insects for up to 90 days and can significantly reduce the presence of insects, taking away a gecko’s food source and forcing them to go elsewhere.

Bifen LP should be applied as both a broadcast and perimeter treatment. To use Bifen LP, you will need a granular spreader. Measure the square footage of your yard to determine how many granules to apply and then load the appropriate amount to the spreader.

Apply around the perimeter of your structure. Next, apply it all over the yard (broadcast) making sure to apply it in mulch areas, in landscaping, and at the foot of ornamentals. Finally, activate the product by watering the areas treated.

Step 2 – Apply Supreme IT

Spraying Reclaim IT in the kitchen

Indoors, you should also address insects and thus we suggest applying Supreme IT Insecticide as a crack and crevice treatment. Supreme IT is an insecticide concentrate designed to control over 70 different insect pests and it also has repellent qualities.

Mix Supreme with water in a gallon sprayer at a rate of 1 oz. per gallon and spray a barrier treatment around points of entry to your home, around doors and windows, as well as cracks and crevices. Avoid the treated areas until the product dries.

You can also apply the Supreme outdoors in flowerbeds, on your ornamentals, and turf to keep the bug population down, taking away the Gecko’s main food source.

Step 3 – Use Glue Boards

Solutions Pro Glue Trap placement

If you have spotted the Gecko indoors but have lost sight of it, placing glue boards along the entryways of the home can help capture the invading Gecko or capture possible future Gecko invasions so they don’t make their way indoors. Solutions Pro Glueboards come in increments of 12, allowing you to establish good coverage around your home so the Gecko is captured quickly.

Simply peel off the protective paper of the glue board and place them around your home in areas where Geckos may be active or try to sneak their way indoors. If Geckos get caught by the board, you can easily dispose of the board and the stuck Gecko.
