Question Lizard capture help

Um hello first post I just hope its in the right place.

Well I have quite a few lizards in my backyard they appear to either be or be close to eastern tree lizards. My question is how would I go about capturing said lizards and releasing them to a more wild place? Numbers are a breeding pair 1 clutch of eggs hatched earlier in the year and a newly layed batch of eggs. I'm not going to disturb the eggs. They are very fast and blend in with the woodpile.

Im from florida, ive been catching lizards since i was 5. You just be fast but gentle, youll get the hang of it. If they go around the other side of a tree use your brains, guess where they are and grab quickly. Good luck

OK this post is a little confusing. To catch the lizards you can either chase them and catch them by hand, or noose them. Make a little noose out of dental floss and hang it down from the end of a fishing poll. Some lizards will allow you to get close with the poll but you must move slowly. slip it around there neck and yank it hard enough to tighten the noose but not too hard. If these lizards are native to your area and you just want to get rid of them because there are too many, you will never get rid of them. If there are only two, it will be no problem.

nooses are for pansies, use your hands bro. But RossCA is right, if their native you will NEVER be able to get rid of them

Why move them? They are obviously doing well where they are.

They feed on pesty insects and are certainly not a danger to anyone.

If they're a native species, the more you move out the more will just move in to take their place...

I agree why move them at all? I love lizards- they eat roaches, which I DON'T love... lol
