I know a lizard was hiding in a certain place and unable to get rid of it.

I kept garlic, onion and naphthalene balls as some suggested but no use.

Either i would need to know a use and throw way to catch the lizard or need to place something to avoid it.

Pls help me with suggestion.


  • What's the lizard doing to bother you? – ThreePhaseEel Sep 20 '17 at 4:17
  • Sprayed solutions of hot sauce are widely recommended for lizard problems, but capsaicin, the hot stuff, irritates mostly mammals, not birds or reptiles or insects. look elsewhere. – Wayfaring Stranger Jun 16 '18 at 23:27
  • glue stick boards resolves the problem as i know the places where lizards will go – Kathir Sep 3 '18 at 17:40

    Do you prefer the bugs that the lizard is eating ? – blacksmith37 Jan 4 '19 at 22:18

The simplest solution is a small live animal trap. Havahart is the most common brand and is widely available in hardware stores with an agricultural bent.

If it's a salamander rather than an actual lizard you may need to cover the trap so it's dark and inviting enough. That's an educated guess; I'm not an herpetologist.
