Lizards, commonly found in all households do not pose direct harm to human beings and do not transfer any deadly diseases but they sometimes carry Salmonella bacteria on their skin which is harmful to humans. It is for this reason that the population of Lizards should be curtailed in the houses.
A moist and cluttered basement, cabinet especially the ones under the kitchen sink are a suitable place for a female lizard to lay her eggs. Lizards lay their eggs in batches, each having at least 20 eggs per batch. In a single mating season, a female lizard can lay two to three batches thereby leading to an infestation problem once the eggs hatch.
