Help, there’s a gecko in my greenhouse!

Q: I have a gecko living in my greenhouse. I was wondering if it will eat my vegetables or will it just eat insects?

Geckos love warm climates, so it’s no surprise that one has found your greenhouse.

Having a gecko in your garden or greenhouse is actually a very sustainable way to manage pests! Geckos are carnivores that dine exclusively on insects. They tend to be very welcomed house guests, as they will eat any insect, from houseflies, to mosquitoes, crickets, aphids, white flies and more.
