There are no toxic products labeled for geckos, lizards 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 are because they can find food and proper habitat. 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 geckos 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 geckos. Spray a good residual insecticide such as Cyper WP around the outside of your home to help cut down on the number of insects the geckos are eating. If geckos 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 geckos like to hide. Rake back mulch or rocks at least 6 inches from the structure.
If you need to get rid of the geckos that are already indoors the only options are catching them by hand or using glue boards placed in areas where the geckos travel.
Carpet beetles are not specifically attracted to any kind of glue trap. Trapper LTD is a non-poisonous glue trap that will trap mice and insects. Cy-Kick Aerosol is a very good product to spray for carpet beetles as well. It is a crack and cervice spray that will provide a fast knockdown for insects.
We do also recommend vacuuming. This will remove the larvae and adult beetles that are already in your home. Regular vacuuming and laundering of rugs, furniture, and linens can help to ensure the beetles are removed and have no food source. If you find a contaminated item, bag and remove this item from your home, if possible. Also, proper storage is a good thing to practice. Before storing silks, woolens, or furs, dry clean as the beetles are attracted to stains and soiled garments. Store in a well-sealed container, using mothballs. Mothballs can limit the beetle’s attraction to the wool or silk. Store pet food, dried meat, and other dried animal products in a well-sealed container. Another thing to do is maintaining outdoors. Adult carpet beetles are most commonly found outside. They feed on pollen and nectar, but lay eggs in bird, rodent, bee, or wasp nests or old spider webs to give the larvae an abundant food source. Clearing these away from your home, along with checking near highly pollinating plants near your house and checking cut flowers for the beetles before bringing them inside.
You can wrap the Trapper LTD mouse glue boards around the pipe, but you most likely will need some type of adhesive to keep the glue board in place. Another great choice for mouse control is the Mini T-Rex snap trap. These traps can be placed in/on mouse runways or tied to pipes or beams that mice may use as highways. A removable bait cup in the center of the trigger pedal makes it easy to add baits including new Provoke Mouse Attractant.You can watch our instructional video explaining how to use the traps on surfaces such as pipes or beams.
The easiest way to kill a mouse after it has been stuck on the Trapper LTD Mouse/Insect Glue Board is to submerge it in a bucket of water. This will drown the mouse immediately.
Treating for rodents can take time and it is very common that you will not always see the dead rodents as they become immobile once the poison hits their central nervous system. Depending on the rodenticide you are using, this can take hours up to weeks. We would suggest using the rodent bait in tamper-resistant bait stations outside the perimeter of the garage and home. Rodents will leave the house to search for a water source and travel along the exterior wall of the home where they will come into contact with the bait station. Be sure you are wearing gloves while handling the rodent bait blox and are checking the bait stations every 14 days. Replenish any eaten bait blox with fresh bait and bait that has not been eaten in 30 days or longer.
Rodents are very smart and afraid of new objects in their runway or that may pose a danger. They travel by sense of touch and smell, so it is very common for the traps to be unsuccessful at first. Take a moment to review our How to use Snap Traps article and How to Set Snap Trap Video for more information.
Fastrac Blox in Protecta Mouse Bait Stations are a good choice for clean out bait and to secure the bait. Bait Stations keep kids, pets and allow you to monitor the bait consumption. Fastrac Blox will provide a lethal dose after a single feeding resulting in death within 24-48 hours after they have consumed the bait. Use 1 bait block per placement (at intervals of 8 to 12 feet) Larger placements, up to 4 blocks, may be needed at points of extremely high mouse activity. Once the pail is open, it is good for 1 year and should be stored in a cool dry place. Unopened pails have a shelf life of 2-3 years. Replace bait as needed and make sure gloves are worn when handling the bait blox. Please read our article on the most common reasons for Rodent Bait Failure to better help and watch our video on How to Use Rodent Bait Stations.
Mice can fit through a ¼ inch opening so thoroughly inspecting the exterior perimeter for signs of gnawing, gaps around plumbing, foundations, vents, under the roof line, under patios, etc will help locate the entry points so they can be sealed off. Inside you will look for droppings, gnaw marks on the legs of furniture, baseboards, cabinets, cardboard, traces of fabric used for nesting like cotton, string, insulation, etc. Once the entry points are identified and treatment has been done, you can work Mice Prevention and Rodent Proofing Your Home for Fall.
The Trapper LTD Mouse/Insect Glue Board is not perforated or meant to be torn into 2 glueboards. These boards measure 8 inch long by 4 inch wide. The Trapper Monitor and Insect Trap TM600 is a non-poisonous glue trap that captures and monitors insects. The sturdy 7" x 3.5" cardboard trap can be used individually as a large trap (100 per box) or separated along perforated lines into three smaller traps (making 300 total small traps).
