Lizards and Wall Geckos in the house!

Experts say that geckos pose no threat to people.

Multiple online posts shared thousands of times urge people to remove geckos from their homes because they are allegedly dangerous and carry deadly bacteria. The claim is false and experts say not only are geckos safe, but they control the spread of insects and bugs that are otherwise a domestic nuisance.

Although the claim varies from post to post, the message is essentially the same: wall or house geckos should be killed because they are dangerous. This danger supposedly stems from geckos carrying lethal germs.
