Lizard Sounds: Do Lizards Make Noise? (2024)

Do Lizards Make Sound?

Lizards are known for many things, but their conversational abilities aren't among them. Very few of the nearly 5,000 species make vocal sounds, meaning it is a rarity to hear lizard noises. Geckos are the chattiest of the common species, communicating with a variety of chirps, squeaks, and clicking sounds. The chirping is used to define territory and also as a mating call.

Other Lizard Sounds

Hissing is a lizard noise that can be made by a wider selection of species. They use this sound to communicate discomfort and fear. The reptiles usually keep their teeth bared after making the noise in an attempt to intimidate. Other species can emit squealing sounds or low growls as defense mechanisms.

Controlling Populations

While it is difficult to use lizard noises as a gauge of nearby populations, small numbers of reptiles in yards aren't usually a problem. An overabundance can damage plants, weaken sidewalks and patios with their digging, and spread diseases. Homeowners with properties overrun by lizards can call Critter Control for safe and effective removal.

BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa!

Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.

Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.

Because bat droppings can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic

On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings.

Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.

She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.

He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
