Is it just me or are geckoes taking over the world?
I've lived in Brisbane all my life and I can't ever recall seeing geckoes gallivanting so blatantly when I was younger.
One of two geckoes playing in our front entry last night
They seem like they are colonising the house. Actually, when Jason removed the old outdoor lantern on Sunday, he disturbed a nest of gecko eggs inside the cavity. I would've taken a photo, but I was too busy dry retching at the sight.
Reptiles are not my cup of tea I'm afraid. Let me rephrase. I'm afraid of reptiles.
My nightly view while I'm tapping away on the laptop is of geckoes suctioned onto the outside window playing cat and mouse with the bugs. It is a very mesmerizing David Attenborough experience as I observe these little lizards gobble up their meal. And they don't even know that I'm watching.
I know they are a good to have around to eat up all the bugs and spiders but...they really love what we have done to the place and seem to be moving in!
Our gecko problem is exacerbated by the fact we have no fly screens on our windows and because we don't have air conditioning we need to have the windows opened during summer.
Another project: how to flyscreen a Queenslander house...
