Bhubaneswar: Are you scared of lizards? Or just irked by the presence of these crawly reptiles on your walls?

Here are a few ways to get rid of lizards. But do remember lizards help in keeping insect population down.

  1. Place Onion or Garlic
    Lizards are repelled by the smell of garlic and onions. Place them strategically in frequented corners and dark hideouts.

    Lizards like dark and damp places. It is important to open cabinets and storage places often.
  3. Naphthalene Balls
    The smell of napthalene balls drives away lizards and other insects like moths.
