Day One Hundred Eleven ~ Bug Patrol

Look who stopped by to say hello…

It’s another screen shot but I had no other way to capture the moment! My little friend is on the outside, keeping a watchful eye on the yard.  The pest control man was banished from my yard years ago after I observed the reality of the process which involved literally hosing down the backyard and plants with chemicals.  Since then, I let nature take care of things and it’s worked out quite fine.  Supposedly one little lizard in your yard can eliminate as many bugs as a pesticide treatment will.  I wish I could tell you which lizard/gecko this guy is, but am not certain.  They are common little yard lizards that keep the unwanted bugs and insects in your backyard in check and are otherwise harmless.  Say NO to chemicals!

  1. I like lizards, they are good animals and don’t harm anyone. I do like the little ones, not too sure about the big ones.

  3. What kind of lizard is this? I’ve seen them around this year and had never before noticed them.

  4. Cool shot! My indoor cats call this LTV. My outdoor cats call it “hunting,” unfortunately. We don’t have our yard or house sprayed either.
