I found a skink in my basement which crawled away quickly while I was trying to pick it up with a piece of paper to put it outside. Next time I see it, I am going to smash that ****ers head with a ball peen hammer.

Why? It will not do any harm to you and their favorite meal is ants. I say the more lizards the better.

I have had them sneak in every so often. I just ignore them and they just disappear somehow.

I live in Port St. Lucie and have a large queen palm tree in my bedroom, and had been hearing rustling in my palm for the past week. Today I was watering the tree and a black lizard, about 6 inches long, jumped out, and sat there watching me. He/she crawled back in the tree. I used to have a palmetto bug/ cockroach problem (as I moved into a house that had been vacant for 2 years, and have been working hard to reestablish my house as human turf). I notice a big reduction in Palmetto bugs. Could this be because of the lizard? I'm wondering if I should I make an effort to catch this lizard (I tried, and he's too fast for me so far) and put it outside, or maybe I should let him live in my indoor tree and allow him to patrol insects in my house?

Leave it alone it is harmless. If you have roaches you will find them laying around with no heads. That seems to be what the lizards always do to them.

I have to confess:

I chase them with brooms, I swat at them with anything with a long handle and I even sprayed "RAID" insect killer on a few of them. Is there a humane way to keep them out?
If you get em in your house, wait till they stick themselves to the window that sun is shining thru, then simply knock them into a cardboard box and let them go outside. They love hanging on the inside glass cause they feel the warmth from the sun. Also, they often run back outside when you open your door cause they miss the warmth. I kind of like them...they taste like Frog Legs.
