Hi all - just wanted to thank the original poster for the oil tip. I was horrified to walk into my garage this morning and find two Alligator Lizards stuck in a long-forgotten glue trap my pest control service had set way back in January. Two minutes on Google and I found this thread (nestled among various sites actually RECOMMENDING glue traps to eliminate lizards and other "pests" and I got to work with some cooking oil and toothpicks. Five minutes more and the little fellas were back under the redtip bush in my front yard, trying to figure out what had just happened. I do fear that the chemicals and stress they encountered will take a toll, but I am grateful they are no longer struggling or suffering. They actually looked pretty good! Glue traps - forever banned from my premises for ANY reason. Thanks.
