:The fruit trees explain why the previous owner was Dr. Chemical. If you don't spray those kinda trees, insects will have at them. But insects invite lizards, birds, and so on.

:Keep the yard chemical free, as organic as possible. Maybe even, if you can afford it, get the garden hose out and spray down the yard and the trees every now and then. A well manicured lawn is less attractive to lizards than an insanely overgrown one. But obviously you must compromise. Either plant more bushes or don't manicure it as much. Consider a backyard pond maybe.

:I would not recommend buying and reintroducing any Anoles. They may have picked up parasites and illnesses while in the stores. However, you could consider going around to safe wild areas to conduct insect collecting. Grasshoppers, crickets, small moths (not butterflies) and such items could then be released in your yard. Avoid bugs like fire flies, bees, ants, and other not so edible bugs.

Oddly enough, that was the one thing he didn't spray. He (and we)keep bees. Bad form to poison your bee's!! So, knowing that buying would be a bad idea, your advice would be to just wait and see if any move in? I would guess that would apply to catching green and brown (a suburb of Houston actually has a population of wild browns)anoles and releasing?
