House Geckos feeding on non-insect foods

House geckos play an important role in the food web in which dengue mosquitoes are embedded. We are conducting a survey to get a better understanding of the opportunistic feeding behaviour of house geckos. House geckos are mostly considered insectivorous but sometimes they also feed on other foods. We are particularly interested in invasive geckos species from the genus Hemidactylus but observations of other species are welcome too.

Please fill out this form if you have ever observed a gecko feeding inside a building on a different location than a window or near a light? If you have observed various species or you have observed a single species at multiple locations, then you can fill out the form several times.

The survey consists of four short questions. The first three questions are about the actual observation (where, what, who) and the last question about the location.
