Lizards again

Post by louy » Thu, 05 Mar 2009 9:49 am

I recently noticed an increase in these friendly creatures in my flat. I had not seen them for months and months but knew they were probably there.

But recently I have been seeing these guys running around.

I know these guys eat insects and things.

Does that mean that there is an increase insects in my appartment now or is it normal to have an increase in these guys at this time of year or is it normal to get an increase in insects this time of year.

Noticed an increase in mosquito bites too in the past week !!!!

I really dont wanna die of Dengue flu !!!!

Don't worry, you won't die of Dengue Flu, Dengue Fever maybe.

The friendly lizards are probably a new batch of them hatched after a period of incubation (they're eggs layers not live bearers). The increase of mozzies probably means nothing more than the fact that you have still water lying somewhere around your flat or outside nearby. You need to do a mozzie breeding place audit of your surrounds., overturned pails (with curled lips hold water, trash like cups, saucers, plates under flowerpots, vases, galah pole holders without caps or drainholes drilled in the bottom. Anything that can and will hold water is a potential breeding place. If you had been trying to get rid of lizards.

Your judicious usage of Pandan leaves probably chased away the food supply so the lizards when looking for a more provident host. Now, they are back either because your pandan leaves are now in need of a change or you are breeding mozzies somewhere.

If it's mozzies and NEA catches you, it's a $300 fine and subsequent fines are $1000. So do a thorough check before a neighbour calls NEA.
