Lizards, geckos and skinks are generally beneficial; catching and eating many insect pests. But to some people their presence in the home can be unwanted. There are also invaders such as the plague skink that are a threat to New Zealand's native skinks.
Geckos and skinks are often found in and around houses in warmer parts of New Zealand. They may be attracted to feed on the insects that have been attracted to the house by night lighting. The plague skink has been found in many parts of the North Island and recently in Marlborough. Plague skinks have one large scale on the top of their head, whereas New Zealand native skinks have two smaller scales.
