  1. I hear you but anything can evolve. We have geckos outside out home that comes inside at night. I think they are coming in through a crack in the front door. But this gecko has been coming in for years now. He gets in our bed and comes close to our mouths. I think he smells the four from our mouths. He runs when we move. I have set traps, sprayed, and put down tobacco balls. I’m desperate at this point that this thing is so bold.
