There are no toxic products labeled for lizards, geckos or any reptiles or amphibians, and given the highly beneficial nature of these creatures there is not likely to be any products for them any time soon.The reason they are on your property is because they can find food and harborage. Take away their food and they will forage somewhere else. Take away the conditions they need for hiding and they will seek refuge someplace else.
You really have two options here:
1.Exclusion. Total exclusion can be hard to achieve particularly around the roof-line where there are going to be gaps that would be very hard to close off, but there also could be some obvious flaws such as broken vent screens, holes around cables, pipes or wires, or gaps under doors. All of these can easily be closed with brush strips, caulking, copper mesh (Stuf-fit), or some other suitable material. Exclusion is the best choice, because it is permanent, and eliminates or reduces the problem in the future too.
2.Outdoor habitat modification. In short get rid of the reasons lizards are there in the first place. They are there because they are finding the food they need to survive (insects) and a place to harbor. If you can eliminate either of these essentials, you can get rid of the lizards. Spray a good residual insecticide such as Cyper WSP around the outside of your home to help cut down on the number of insects the lizards are eating. If lizards cannot find enough food they will either move on or starve. Eliminate as much clutter and debris around the outside of your home as possible to eliminate the places lizards like to hide. Rake back mulch or rocks at least 6 inches from the structure
If you need to get rid of the lizards that are already indoors the only options are catching them by hand or using glueboards placed in areas where the lizards travel.
The Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh is used to close openings that rodents can get into. It is usually used with expanding foam. Typically, if you close an opening around a pipe or wire with just expanding foam, the rodents will eat through it. If you place Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh in the hole first and then use expanding foam, the foam will encase the mesh. Then if rodents try to chew through the foam, they will ingest the tiny shards of the mesh and it will kill the rodents. You can easily cut the Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh with a pair of scissors to fit any sized opening.
Yes, STUF-FIT Copper Mesh can safely be used in this type of area.

STUF-FIT Copper Mesh is designed to be fill holes in areas such as holes in attic walls around copper pipes and heat would not be an issue.
What type of traps are you using? Are you catching the mice in the traps?Mice can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ¼ inch. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for mice (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Yes, STUF_FIT Copper Mesh would be a great product for that application. It is a copper mesh wool material that is rust-proof and stain-proof. Stuff it into openings around pipes or other holes and cracks in the structure and keep rats, mice, birds, and other wildlife out.
Using STUF-FIT Copper Mesh alone in cracks and areas where there are gaps is usually not enough to deter rodents since they can easily pull it out. You should either cement the Stuffit in place or typically, you would at least use an expandable foam in the crack or gap which will hold the Stuff-it in place and prevent it from easily being pulled out which would allow it to last indefinitely.
You could use STUF-IT Copper Mesh around the outlet as long as the product in no way would come in contact with the wiring or the junction box inside as that could be a conduit and would be a fire hazard. We would recommend that you concentrate on the outside of you home in particular so that you are making sure that nothing is getting into the wall void, or has any access to the inside of you home. That is the only way to insure that you are completely covered completely from any mice entering your home.
Since mice can fit through any opening 1/4 inch in size, using exclusion products is very effective. Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh or Xcluder Single Rolls are able to be cut and and will conform to any opening, crack and crevice around your home and in your crawl space. When also treating your crawl space, you will also want to use the exclusion products around pipes, cables, or structural voids around the house. Cut the material 2 inches wider than the opening, fold to fit into opening as best you can. Then using a blunt object such as a screw driver, push the Copper Mesh or Xcluder into the opening till flush or a little bit below.

STUF-FIT Copper Mesh should not rust over time and would only need to be replaced if it appears to have been removed or otherwise damaged. For Stuf-Fit used in structural holes, it would be best to cover the mesh with a solid sealant such as spray foam or caulking so that the mesh cannot be removed by rodents or other animals and so that you are providing a water-tight barrier.
If you use the Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh as a wrap, the rodents should not be able to chew through it if you use many layers, however, it would be best to use something more permanent, such as a metal baseplate. The copper mesh is intended to be stuffed into small holes, and then it is usually sealed with a hard filler such as expansion foam. We would recommend using rodenticide in tamper-resistant stations around the exterior of the barn to keep rodents out of the area. Our Rodent Baiting Kit contains stations and bait that can be used for rats or mice.
The Stuf-Fit Copper Mesh is 6 inches wide.
