Need To Catch Some Lizards?

The other day my daughter walked into the kitchen to get a snack and then came quickly running out while giving the most fearful scream "AAaaaaaaaaargh". This is what she saw:

Sorry, this picture may not be for the squeemish.

This was a box of chocolate almond cookies given to me as a birthday present. I believe my little son had some the night before and may not have closed the lid properly. Anyway, I can understand if there was only one lizard inside. Maybe it got caught by accident. But THREE lizards???? I don't think this was an accident. I think they were after my cookies! And here I thought that lizards only ate insects.

Anyway, I closed the lid tight and left them in there to die (Ewww, no way I was going to let them out). These hardy creatures lived several more days. KokoD observed them like a science experiment those few days. He noticed the cookies were getting less and less. Which confirms the fact that THEY EAT COOKIES!

Anyway, if you are looking for a lizard trap, this could be a solution. This is probably the most bizarre way to catch lizards. Actually, it's not even proven to be successful. Maybe this is just a one time thing or maybe it's just the lizards in my house. I'm definitely not trying again to see if it works.

My first thoughts when I saw those lizards.... "Thank goodness I already ate most of those cookies".


  1. ew, ew, ew, ew, EW!! I hate these b@ggers. the skirting in my living room is full of their poop. urgh. what a horrible find for your daughter. N'ways, a friend of mine was telling me that to get rid of them, either stick egg shells on your wall or use peacock feathers... think I'm going to try that tip soon myself!

    oh and what cookie are those?? maybe it's that particular type/brand that attracts them?? would be good for bait...

  2. Yup, ew ew ew ew ew. The peacock feathers sound interesting. Better than sticking egg shells on the wall. Can't imagine what people will say when they visit your home. Hahahah. By the way, it's Chocolate Almond cookies from Rotiboy.

  3. Geli lar. and the lizards are FAT!.


Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
