Default Where do tree frogs and gecko's go during the day

Most evenings as i sit on my patio im accompanied by a number of different gecko's my kids have names for them all and we really enjoy their company.
We also have a few different tree frogs who come and say hello as well. My kids are so thrilled to see these but keep asking me where they go during the day and im stumped as i dont know.
As its heading towards the wet season up in Darwin we are certainly seeing more of the tree frogs and they are not bothered by us going up to them.
the other night i had one sat on my drinks fridge while i went and got a drink out.
Tonight while i let the dog out for his late night pee i had a frog follow me around the path, my daft dog never seems to notice them or if he does he is not interested in them.
So does any one know where my visitors are likely to be during the day?

Default Re: Where do tree frogs and gecko's go during the day

When you notice strange little raised marks appearing on all your walls, you'll realise where they go. We don't have any in Sydney (in an apartment) but in Singapore ours lived mostly behind pictures and beams on the ceiling, and poo'd everywhere They're great though, keep the insects under control.

We're currently in a villa in Bali and have tons of them. They're not shy at any time of day and last night two were having an almightly row, really noisy (they're known as chk-chks in Sg for the noise they make).

We also have a fish poind outside the open air bathroom and have tiny frogs (about a 50 cents coin) leaping around the bathroom. And large lizards taking a swim in the pool

You tend to find the tree frogs under cool things with a gap under like a plant pot or large rock etc. Gecko's go in cracks in roof or eaves, behind your pictures inside the house and on top of curtain rails.

They've taken over your position on the porch, told them they have to be willing to share

I've got a couple of geckoes that lurk in my place, certainly keep the insects down, they'll even eat cockroaches.
