A homemade and organic lizard repellent is made by mixing 1 tablespoon of Tabasco sauce into a spray bottle filled with water. Shake the mixture well and spray it into the corners where lizards have been seen. Repeat the process for several days until the lizards move elsewhere. Add garlic essence and onion juice to the mixture for even greater effectiveness.

Place several egg shells in an area where lizards have been spotted. The lizards assume some other organism is nearby, and because of their territorial behavior, they vacate the premises. Several commercial electric repellents are available that emit high frequency sounds that are disturbing to the lizards, but inaudible to humans.
