buying and releasing is probably not a good idea. Even though the lizards you buy are going to be wild caught, it is never a good idea to realase captive animals into the wild. They could have picked up a diease from thier surroundings after being caught, or just from being from a different part of the country they may be resisent to a disease/parasite that they are carrying which could harm the wild population in your part of the country.

I would just them let come back naturally. Obviously the first step would be to stop with the poison. Then you need to attract the anoles from the surrounding land. i think the best way would be to attract what they eat...insect. plant trees, flowers, etc. It may take a few seasons, but I would think they would come back.

I would like to just state that I am in no way an expert and I have experienced these things, I am just speculating.

good luck

:My wife and I bought a house on 6(+) acres last May. The previous owner was "DR. CHEMICAL", sprayed everything down with
:poison. The obvious end result of this was, you guessed it - no lizards. Not only that, but no Med. Gekcos either. My question would be, how could I entice anoles back onto the property? Would it be better (easier) to buy some and release? Just for the record, we live outside a small town SW of Houston Tx.
:Thanks.
