Last year we had tons of Geckos living at our home. This year we only see a few common house Geckos. Did the freeze decrease the poplulation? We have not use pesticides in 14 years. JM

I have a few geckos. Their full name is Mediterranean House Gecko, so I think the answer might be that the colder than usual weather knocked out some of these less-than-hardy immigrant critters.

They seem to come back over time. A couple of years ago I had fewer in the spring, but by fall, I was seeing more on my windows and doors.

We used to be thick with geckos until we acquired three cats. Now I rarely see a gecko.

Last night(10-25-11),I counted 20 Geckos all around my house,front yard had about 15,different sizes,backyard had 5 big ones(parents?).Also had 3 small garder snakes(about 5 inches long) between the grass and the foundation of the house. We have no cats,but I sometimes see a mocking bird with a small Gecko in it's mouth.
