I was just wondering....we live in the country in SC and have little chameleon lizards absolutely crawling
all over our home. We dont mind these cute little guys but today I went to turn on the hose and a lizard
nearly a foot long jumped out of the bushes and ran into my vent for the crawl space.|
He didn't look like the cute little green chameleons. He was reddish brown.
What should we do???
|And my reply....|
Hmmmmmm. That's a new one on me! I do know that the little ones are usually green, and as they get older they get darker.
These little fellows don't really hurt anything, but I can certainly understand why you wouldn't want your crawl space filled up with them!
I don't think there is a "chemical" answer, but you could block off your crawl space vent so they can't get in. Best thing to use would be hardware cloth.

You can also get it in a quarter-inch configuration, if the above is too big. I would install it on the OUTSIDE so you can inspect it easily. Just cut it a bit larger than the vent and wedge it in. Do this in the daytime when (presumably) they will be out hunting!
Good luck! Hope this helps!
