Time for Monsoon showers to knock doors at Delhi and Gurgaon and so is the time for new born baby Lizards to show up crawling on floor, walls and around your house. Don’t let these repulsive Pests scare your loved ones

So here we try to list some measures which can help us keep our homes Lizards-free.
- Keep your house and it’s surroundings clean. An unclean house attracts all sorts of Insects including lizards by providing them food and shelter .
- Keep clear gap between walls and furniture for regular cleaning and denying any hiding places to lizards. Any hanging picture must be tightly flushed against the walls so that no gap is left between wall and pictures.
- Fix any moisture source present in the house.
- Seal the openings between wall and wood or between Wood and floor with the help of sealants.
- Screens all the windows so that no gap is allowed from where lizards can access your house.
- If crack or opening between wall floor junction or wall wood junction must be repaired properly to prevent their entry.
