Step 2

Spray bug repellent in and around your home. Bugs are a food source for lizards, and without bugs they will not stay. If the lizards like a specific area, then it probably has bugs.


Step 3

Plug in an electric lizard repellent. Lizard repellents emit a high-frequency sound that humans can't hear, but it bothers lizards. The lizards will leave the area where the repellent is plugged in. Electric lizard repellents are sold in home and garden stores.

Step 4

Mix a bottle of water, approximately 2 cups, with 2 to 3 teaspoons of Tabasco sauce. Shake the bottle and spray it in the areas where the baby lizards appear. The spicy sauce will eventually get on their tongues, and they will not frequent that area again. Repeat for several days.


Step 5

Place flypaper around the house near lights. Bugs will go to the lights and become stuck on the paper. Baby lizards will attempt to eat the bugs, sticking onto the flypaper. You can then dispose of the lizards.
