Well, all of us have seen a lizard once in our lifetime. For some, it appears to be a harmless creature and for some, it is a very scary reptile! Lizards are a common infestation in most Indian households. The main point of a dilemma is - are they really harmful and how to prevent them. In this article, we will delve into the causes of lizard infestations, explore the potential risks they pose, and provide practical solutions to get rid of the lizards.
Understanding Lizard Infestations:
Lizards are attracted to environments that provide them with ample food, shelter, and water sources. Factors such as warm climates, availability of insects, and suitable hiding places contribute to increased lizard activity. Therefore, regions with these characteristics are more prone to lizard infestations.
Lizards can find their way into our homes through small cracks, gaps, or open windows and doors. Insufficient sealing around windows and improper screening of vents are common entry points for lizards. Identifying and rectifying such vulnerabilities is crucial to preventing infestations.
Risks Associated with Lizard Infestations:
While lizards themselves are generally harmless, their presence can lead to various issues:
Lizards can leave behind droppings or shed their skin, which may contaminate food preparation areas or cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.
Damage to Property:
Lizards may cause damage to property by gnawing on electrical wiring, furniture, or delicate items. It can result in potential safety hazards and costly repairs.
