The Q&A Archives: Landscape pests

Question: I have lizzards all over my landscaping. How do I get rid of them?

Answer: All lizards are carnivores, feeding primarily on insects and other small bits of meat they find, such as worms. Some larger species are capable of tackling even rodents or small snakes, and in our backyards they help us out by consuming many of the insects we prefer not to deal with. There is nothing you can do to discourage the lizards from visiting your garden - they are obviously finding food and water there. You can check with your local cooperative extension office to see if they have suggestions. Best wishes with your garden.
