Full Answer

Lizards do not remain if there is no food. They feed on bugs. Getting rid of the bugs by frequently spraying the area with an insecticide also keeps lizards away. If lizards persist in inhabiting an area, they can be caught by spraying them with cold water. The cold water slows them down, allowing them to be captured and moved to a new location.
