Can You Use Snake Repellent Pods to Keep Lizards Away?

Other than having a snake infestation problem, are you also bothered by lizards or other reptiles in your home? While these reptiles may not be harmful or poisonous, it is best to keep them away from the house, where they can potentially harm children and pets.

In this article, we will run you through the methods to keep lizards away from your home.

Are Lizards Harmful?

Lizards are not harmful to have in the home as they often eat insects smaller than them. This can include mosquitos, cockroaches, ants, beetles, and flies. 

They can live for three to 50 years, depending on their species. They are usually harmless. However, lizards can ingest insects that have diseases and viruses. This may cause their stool or feces to be hazardous later

Looking into Common Lizard Hiding Spots

Lizards usually avoid coming close to humans. When it is cold or nighttime, they don’t need much food, so they tend to hide in areas that will keep them warm. This may be a tree trunk, a hole in the soil, or under a burrow of leaves.

If you have a significant infestation, there may not be enough space in your house for them to roam, and lizards may start to crawl on your bed while chasing their prey.

Homemade Lizard Repellent

You can use a variety of lizard repellents at home. You can use hot sauce, pepper, or anything that emits a strong smell to deter them. Here are some sample solutions:

  • Cayenne Pepper Repellent: Add a few tablespoons of hot sauce, pepper, or cayenne to a pint of warm water. Shake the solution and spray along the corners of your home. You can also include access points like doors and windows.
  • Vinegar Repellent: You can make a solution of vinegar, lemon, and chili powder. This irritates their skin, eyes, and nose.
  • Garlic Spray: You can hang cloves of garlic near your door or windows to keep these pests away. You can also make a spray from garlic juice and water to spray around the house.
  • Eucalyptus and Peppermint: You can combine eucalyptus and peppermint essential oil as a spray on your baseboards and outside the house near your foundation. You can use these to spray around small holes or poorly sealed areas in your home.
  • Animal Repellent

    If you have ultrasonic repellents that emit high-frequency pulsed electromagnetic waves, they can also work on lizards. However, the effectiveness of these devices may vary.

    Snake Repellents
