We recently moved to Florida from New Jersey and we have a lizards problem.
There are these curly tail large lizards around the house, but that's not a problem... when they get inside the house... that's a big problem.:no:

I do not want to hurt them, I just want to let them know their boundries.
Is there some kind of effective sonic repellent that I may use? :yes:

Do they look like this?



If this is what you have it is known as a "green anole". There are also "brown anoles" which are more common.

I suggest getting rid of the food source, which in this case is flies and other insects. Personally I'd rather live with the anoles, which are harmless.

No, that is a pretty green lizard, but the ones I am talking about are gray and big with the tails curled up.

Perhaps it's a Northern curly tailed lizard. Native to Cuba and the Bahamas, but the species was introduced to Florida.

I'll bet if you can get rid of all the crickets in the vicinity of your home the lizards will move on.

These are gray and large with curled tails. They are very aggressive and may bite... I think.
They only bite when they become afraid of you. You leave them alone, they will leave you alone. As for getting into the house, that means that the door is not being closed, and that there needs to be places addressed where utilities enter the home, that have openings large enough for the critters to get in.

This is the one. I do'nt know what they eat, because I do not see any crickets in my yard.

If they would stay outside, I would be happy with that, but it is when they come inside and refuse to leave.

As already mentioned you simply need to figure out how they are getting in and block entry.

No different than keeping mice out or any other critters out.
