The Q&A Archives: Getting Rid Of Lizards

Question: Help! I'm being overrun by lizards. They just consumed the cucumbers that were barely up.

How do I get rid of these little pests!

Thank you

Answer: Lots of critters love tender seedlings - various rodents, slugs, birds, even lizards! Usually covering seedlings with a light, protective fabric confuses most pests enough to make them seek food elsewhere. You can purchase "Summerweight" row cover and wire support hoops from Gardener's Supply Co. (; ph# 800/863-1700). Anchor the edges with 2x4's to further deter those who try to slip underneath. Hope this helps!
