Those darn lizards!

Interesting. I will give this a try too. It must mean they have some kind of memory or awareness of the danger...

If the house is clean and disinfected every day Plus adequate netting on every window, there will be no mosquitos and consequently no geckos.

My wife is horrified of lizards, even though she grew up here.  The way we deal with it is of course A/C, but we seal windows and doors but if you have to open them make sure you have a screen on windows and doors.  Seal everything including electrical

Second, get rid of the food source which is insects.  We use a variety of insect killers but we fumigate at least on a monthly basis.  This has significantly reduce the amount of lizards inside for the exception of a lone rogue once in a while.  My wife is a neat freak so the house is usually spotless.  No food is ever left out in the open..

This has helped us cope... and restored my sanity..
