I’m not sure whether you like lizards or not, but I’m guessing you’d probably prefer not to find one in your house.
But, I have quite a few that live in the garden, and about 4 or 5 that live right in my herb garden.
Since they “moved in” (well, started their little family, because I’ve seen a few grow from tiny little things to quite large lizards), the number of unwanted bugs in my herb garden has DRAMATICALLY decreased.
At one point there were quite a few large ants that seemed to be taking over, especially over my basil tree, but now there are no ants to be seen. I’m not sure if lizards eat ants, or just keep them out, but I’m happy.
Anyway, I just thought I would share a few photos I’ve taken of the lizards in my herb garden. Just click on an image to see a larger version.
