Wild Life in the City #5 - Common House Gecko

๐‘ช๐’๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’๐’ ๐‘ฏ๐’๐’–๐’”๐’† ๐‘ฎ๐’†๐’„๐’Œ๐’ also known as Wall Gecko. You might be aware of their existence by their waste-dropping stains on walls, fabrics or home furniture.

Actually, they do not cause any risk to humans. They donโ€™t transfer deadly diseases like mosquitoes or cockroaches nor do they bite and suck blood from humans as bed bugs do. In fact, they help reduce various insects by preying on flies, mosquitoes and moths.

Look behind paintings hung on the wall, among piles of newspapers and garbage or behind bookshelves and cupboards. These little reptiles like hiding in these few places!
