Gecko – Control

Q: I must be living on top of a gecko nest. I have cut the bushes down that are around my house, hoping to eliminate their living area, but to no avail. They are crawling on my brick and have invaded my screened-in porch. They have even gotten into my basement. Yesterday, I opened my screen door on the porch and one landed on my arm – I almost came unglued!! I have tried sprinkling Snake A Way around the foundation, but that doesn’t seem to help. I don’t necessarily want to kill them – just repel them. Any ideas?

A: I don’t have any repellents…you’ve done well by cutting down their shelter in the shrubs. Try spraying garden insecticide on the ground to kill insects they might be eating because changing their food source might help them to move on.
