Foodie roommate

Some lovely roommates might stay with you in your cottage. By eating mosquitos and insects, they are favorable roommates for human. These insect-catching little helpers are part of natural food chain to maintain the nature’s balance.



Mosquitoes and insects are attracted by indoor lightings while geckos have been waiting for them in cottages, ready to enjoy their meal and deworm for human guests. In Taiwanese, we say geckos live in south of Jhuoshuei River make sounds whereas geckos live the north of Jhuoshuei River don’t. In Kentington, you might hear male geckos make sounds when defending enemies or courting.


Geckos excrete whenever they have eaten food, don’t hesitate to contact us and let us do the cleaning for you at any time.



Most bats eat insects, they are afraid of human but sometimes bats would burst into cottages by accident when chasing after insects. As mammalians, bats averagely give birth to 1 baby per year and thus they are quite precious. Bats represent blessing in Chinese culture. Bats are beneficial for guests since they eat mosquitoes and insects.


When bats accidently burst into the room, you can gently wave a towel to guide them to the open window and fly out.Be careful not to damage their fragile wings.
