A couple of weeks back I noticed a small gecko in the roof of my hive so I gently moved him somewhere else as a precaution. A couple days later, I noticed there were 2 small geckos in there and so I moved them again because I wasn’t sure if they would kill my bees. Just today, when inspecting the brood, I noticed the gecko was inside the brood box, running around on the frames. I also noticed that the bees didn’t seem to mind but I wasn’t able to catch him.
I was just wondering if anyone knows if geckos actually eat bees? Some people online have said they do, while some said that they live in the hives and eat beetles. I have to admit, I don’t see many beetles in my hive so I hope it’s because the geckos are eating them.
Does anyone know if I should leave the gecko or get rid of him? It’s just a normal house gecko.
