I've got a few of these around.  They work okay.  Small crickets are the best bait.

The nieces feed the botiki we harvest to our poultry.


Hope this helps.

Apparently crickets like sugar.  Use the same bottle method with sugar in the bottle to catch the crickets.  Wait long enough and the lizards will follow.

I got used to gecko's living as guests in the house while on Okinawa.   I now welcome their presence as they spend their evenings eating insects.

No idea what the fuzz is with these harmless creatures that actually helps in controlling and ridding of all these insects and mosquitoes that carries disease.

The lizards are great.  For extra entertainment can lead them around the wall and ceiling with a laser pointer.  They will follow it.
