Woman finds gecko family hiding behind a door

Not so long ago, an aunty in Thailand who stumbled upon a giant gecko in her house demonstrated how to remove the reptile with her bare hands.

Given such a situation, we can assume that certain four-legged squatters – especially geckos and monitor lizards – are not easy to deal with at all.

But don’t worry just yet, there’s another simple trick anyone can do.

Read on to find out how this Thai woman expertly removed a family of geckos from her house without touching them.

Soon after she sprayed gecko-repellant on the wall, the four-legged squatters moved out peacefully and were nowhere to be found.

One viewer recommended having cat as a pet.

Make sure the geckos really moved out

Even though those geckos appear to have moved out from where they were found, we cannot be sure if they really moved out of the house or hid somewhere.

So, make sure they no longer reside in the house or else the TikToker will need to find a new home.
