Go Gecko was formulated due to market demand and the need to eradicate geckos and their droppings from human dwellings. The animal species scientifically known as the hemidactylus frenatus is frequently found in our homes, offices, warehouses, outhouses, barns, caravans and dwellings throughout the world. This gecko, commonly known as the tropical house gecko have since established themselves in 87 locations throughout the globe. Although geckos eat the insects found in their vicinities, they also cause great destruction to other indigenous gecko's and lizards by eating their young and intercepting their natural food supply. A common problem found in homes and businesses with geckos, are their droppings, which fall behind furniture and picture frames. At this stage they are moist and carry extremely dangerous bacteria, commonly known as salmonella, which if not treated can cause serious bowel problems in humans and can lead to death, just by touching it, like any faeces over time a fungus starts to grow on them as the dropping dry's out the fungus disintegrates and is released into the air in fine spores. These spores of fungus and faeces which initially carried salmonella and other bacteria, are then inhaled by us in our homes, which may be a large cause of respiratory problems, such as sinusitis and asthma in adults and children. Extensive studies related to this gecko have been conducted by Dr. Cole from the University of Bristol. He found that other smaller day geckos where negatively impacted by the Tropical House Gecko, where both species occurred. The smaller day geckos were impacted by increased parasite susceptibility, he said that it has shown “a negative impact on the day gecko's body condition, which is likely to have detrimental results on this species.” GO GECKO is a biodegradable, non-toxic chemical that when correctly applied repels geckos. With studies and field testing having been conducted we have utilised our knowledge of the geckos respiratory system and Jacobson's Organ to develop a product with biochemical specialists that will temporarily interfere with the geckos sensory reception ability. Go Gecko is environmentally friendly and Non-toxic, and designed to be used indoors and outdoors. When applied to an affected area which has geckos, the product adheres to the surface and allows a slow release of the active chemical ingredient into the air around the spray site, causing geckos temporary distress to their respiratory system, this chases them away. Geckos are extremely territorial and the moment the resident animals are chased away and leave the area that was recently sprayed, a new male will enter the area, attempting to take residence. In order to break this cycle regular spraying needs to be maintained. The product lasts for a period of two (2) weeks once applied. In highly infested area's more regular spraying will be necessary. Go Gecko is a silicone based product which encapsulates the active chemical ingredient allowing a slow release into the air of the area that it is applied to. The product needs to be shaken well before use, in order to activate the airborne
properties within the bottle. The area's normally negatively affected by geckos are, alarm infrared sensors which emit false alarm signals when a gecko walks over them, electronic equipment that runs warm such as photocopy machines, fax machines, Switchboard PABX boxes, telephone boxes exposed to the sun, electricity boxes, air-conditioning units, gate motors, alarm control boxes, computers PC boards are burnt when a gecko crawls across the contacts, light fittings etc... The regular application of Go Gecko around this equipment will stop the geckos from entering into the panels and will minimise damage. Typically the windowsills, air vents, air bricks, doorways and any other entry points
for a gecko will need Go Gecko applied. A fine mist spray applied to these areas will be affective. One 500ml bottle of Go Gecko will allow a 60 -70 metre spray line. If Go Gecko is applied to an area copiously it may leave a residue on that surface.
