When I was living in the far East(Sumatra, Borneo, Singapore) we used to have small lizards that chirped like birds. They are called Che-chuks. We just left them alone because they kept the insect population in check.

I know..... I'm no help at all!

I lived in Morrocco as a kid when my Dad was in the Navy. We had geckos throughout the house. Used to watch them skitter across the ceiling at night. We loved them and assumed they kept the bug population down. I caught one of those large cameleons and let it loose in the house; it ate bugs and some of the geckos. Mom wasn't pleased with the noticable droppings from the larger lizard, so out it went.

Something like "Great Stuff"foam caulking sealer should plug up the cracks..available at hardware and home stores.

When I was in Ha. in 1946 all homes had lizzards in them to control the bug problem that happens in the tropic. You might not want to get rid of all of them and I am sure you have a simular bug problem in Fla. That's if the lizzards are not too big.
Good Luck

My cat has something wrong with his tongue and I heard that certain lizards in Fl.can be poisonous to cats and dogs.I think he may have gotten mixed up with one,but I'm not sure.I'm trying to save my cat and I'm not sure what to do.He is drooling and can't seem to eat or drink.It's been like this for one day.
