How can I kill gecko and millepede who enter the house?

Loida karagiozaki from Kavala Greece asks:

how can I kill the gecko who enters the house and what can I do with millipede? Thank you for the time

L'Esperto answers:

Good morning,

You can control the millipedes using biocide-insecticide (must be indicated millipede in label) or catch them with sticky trap (for scutigera you can use insect alive for attractive).

Geko is a useful animal, hunter of insect and millipede; if you reduce population of prey, you also reduce presence of geko.

You can catch geko with sticky trap, but check the traps daily to kill quickly the geko trapped.

Best regards
