    The reason why you should kill wall geckos in your house

    Most  Nigerians are of the superstitious belief that the wall gecko has a role to play in the affairs of their homes which is why they choose to ignore it. They also feel that the reptile does not harm anyone so they don’t see the need to kill or bother it.

    The wall gecko is an animal that stakes locations waiting for a wandering insect or cockroach to pass by for then to pounce and make a meal of it, so people are of the opinion that the wall gecko helps them get rid of mosquitoes and dangerous insects so they are to be left alone to thrive. 

    In case you belong to this school of thought of people who have perspectives about wall geckos, then there is a need to read this article and change your views after reading the story of a family that got killed and why.

    The Story

    Reports had it that a mother of a particular family had a pot of soup prepared for dinner and she had probably forgotten to close the lid thereby leaving it ajar, or maybe she left it open on purpose just to let steam out and allow the soup to cool before it gets covered.

    While she was out for other chores, a gecko fell into the hot soup and died from the heat. 

    The family later dined on the soup. Then the following morning, they were all found dead from food poisoning. There was no way to find out whether they ate poison. During the course of the investigation, a dead gecko was seen in the pot of soup.

    Evidently, the poison from the animal had leaked into the soup, the skin of the gecko which carries a number of pathogens that can cause food poisoning.

    Suggested remedies:

    One must plan a strategy to eliminate geckos from their homes. A suggestion by an unknown individual stated that

    “To eradicate it totally in your home, just mix salt and garlic and put it in different corners of your room. You will never see them again.”
