I have a pair of lizards living in my garage and they are disgusting and aggressive. They run at my kids and stop and stare then quickly run to their hiding places. I'd like to know how to exterminate. email [email protected]

I have a whole family of curly tailed lizards at my house. It started with one or two , then before you know it I had the whole family. I would say it took approx 4 years and I probably now have around 30 or more lizards around my house, they have recently started trying to move into my closed in lanai. Usually they live under my lg rocks and even in my garage in and out. I call them my GREEN bug control. I haven't had to have bug service in years. They don't get them all but I have to use allot less chemicals around my house.

I saw a bunch of these lizards in Stuart at the old McDonalds on US 1. They were outside the front door around the picnic tables.

I have them to well use to that is. They would make my dog go crazy in addition to living in the cracks of my side walk. They also poop all over the place and they eat our native lizards. There is nothing you can do as far as poisons. I went to Wal-Mart bought a 30 dollar pump Bee Bee gun, and got rid of them.
