    Rat glue under a nightlight. The light will attract the fly's and the fly's will attract the geckos. Moth balls are supposed work but you'd need to put them all over the house.

    And shit everywhere on everything.

    I knock'em down with a Thai broom and my Labrador eats them like a snack. Keep pressure on them and they will go away to shit elsewhere

    I stood on one once, accidentally. FFS, the screech it gave out nearly gave me a heart attack!
    Another jingjok story: I'm in the habit of pouring a nightcap of hong tong and milk to enjoy with my last ciggie on the balcony each night. I went to the toilet and when I came back there was a black blob floating in my drink. I fished it out with my finger and it was sticky, so not a stray ash from my ciggie. Didn't think any more of it. Carried on sipping my nightcap, had a 2nd ciggie. As I finished my drink in one gulp, I felt something in my mouth. A fvken jingjok had drowned in my drink! The thought of it shitting and pissing and vomitting as it drowned in my drink which I had just drunk made me retch violently. I never leave an unattended drink uncovered now.

    We leave them alone because they eat the bug's but our cat likes them so occasionally they get eaten.

    Do they? Even though it was a few years ago for my above drowned gecko story, you've just made me retch again. I didn't get sick from that episode though.

    Vermin, wife hates 'em, no kids nor pets so I freely use insecticide for the roaches, mossies, etc. Kill 'em if they make it into the house. And I will hunt 'em down if I see their scat.

    Yes their shit carries disease and they shit on everything. I kill them regularly (Well my dog does, I just help her).

    They do congregate around lights because the bugs do. But lets be realistic here, they do not kill enough bugs, flies and mosquitoes to make a difference. But what they leave behind is worse. I hate the fkrs

    Pretty hard to eliminate the little buggers but keeping food inaccessible helps cut down numbers.

    Geckos don't piss. They pass urine in their shit together. Same as a bird or snake.

    Geckos are very territorial. Kill one and another will take its place very quickly.

    Best thing is to get a couple of Tokay's, they're pretty too

    EDIT

    Easy to spot in your drink too.

    Yeah. But the overall thought is the same.

    Regular spraying the house with insecticide gets rid of them. Don’t know if they die from the poison or leave for lack of food.

    I'm sure there's others?

    • Place some eggshells. This is a very effective and inexpensive way to scare away geckos: they see eggshells and they think “predator.” ...
    • Plant some mothballs. ...
    • Set sticky traps. ...
    • Make a coffee and tobacco ball. ...
    • Place a garlic clove. ...
    • Cut some onion slices. ...
    • Pepper-spray around your home. ...
    • Catch a gecko, let it go.

    Don't see many do you?

    Geckos are lizards belonging to the infraorder Gekkota, found in warm climates throughout the world. They range from 1.6 to 60 cm (0.64 to 24 inches).
