How about a broad headed skink?

This fella has been hanging out under one of my hives...he's a good 10 inches long.  Not really sure if he's part of the solution, or part of the problem, but I'm thinking I'm going to dust him if the opportunity presents itself.  Smiley

As a ground lizard I can't see how he's hurting anything.

Perhaps he noticed that there were some expelled drones or dying bees crawling around on the ground.

It's not venomous, its not dangerous. I say live and let live.

Probably help keep ants maybe even beetles managed, but they are not much of a threat I do not think to the bees. Stings on the inside of their mouth surely teach them a lesson of what not to eat, unless it falls or dies outside the hive or is tossed.

I have had the little green lizards enter the hive and stay a few minutes and come back out as casual as could be. Bees not disturbed, lizard not in a hurry. Viewed this action more than once.  Smiley d2

I say leave him too. If you have a SBB then I bet he's living on SHB larvae, wax moth larvae, dying bees and pollen. Sounds like a pretty plumb living arrangement.

scubajohn,
DANG....That's brutal!  laugh

Update on the situation, so far, the broad-headed skink and I have managed to co-exist.  Perhaps you and your X could do the same.  grin

Some kinds of lizards are dangerous and poison so we are need to keep these lizards from our house and garden.It may cause of some serious problems like the death of some animals and other there for we should have some better way to remove these lizards from out houses. What you think about it..

If you get.

this lizard kill it.

this lizard is green an blotchy, much like a painted pony. only green with different colors of blotches on the body. white, light green, brown.
this one comes from Cuba, is real nasty and vicious this on will bite you! Be careful.

Kill it. it is not native to America. kill it it bites! and has a triangle head. kill it.

I've never seen my lizards here go after a live healthy bee. They do love the freshly dead ones though, and the sick crawling ones that are at the edge of death, the ones that don't have enough energy to sting even if they thought about it.
