victory is mine!

It looks like we are winning the battle against those annoying geckos in my house and I am super happy about it.

We live in a two story house, so most of the time there is really good breeze coming in through the windows and doors, so we keep them open as long as it's not raining.

The windows have screens on but obviously the door don't so this allows those white common house geckos to come in as they please.

At first we didn't really care if the geckos where around, (as they help by eating the bugs - including mosquitoes). After a while there were everywhere; behind each picture frame on the wall, and in corner where we it's not easy to get to them. Sometimes we were watching tv at night and we can see them running around chasing each other to mate, they we will find eggs in potted plants.

But the worst part is that once you get a few inside the house, they leave their droppings everywhere... Yuck, simply disgusting and dirty...

But, we don't really want to kill them, we just want them out of the house and into the wild, but in a natural way...

Well, finally after months of doing research on the subject of "how to get rid of geckos" and finding nothing,. About a week ago a Jamaican lady that gave a facial the day we went to the "staff appreciation day", said to try Eucalyptus essential oil on a diffuser... well, guess what? It works!!!!

I've been burning on an off for about a week now and we see less geckos now, maybe one of two, so it looks like victory is mine!!!

Bye, bye geckos, enjoy the wilderness of Cayman!

Well, first of all to them naughty geckos... that's just not good manners when someone lets you dine in their home :-)

Now having said that, that was just a BRILLIANT harmless solution! Just hope you don't get to suffer runny eyes :-))

o.O I have one living at the back of my cupboard too! Agree, their poo-poos are the most annoying part.
