First of all you should ensure that they don't come inside the house. They normally come through open windows and doors. You can use mosquito mesh for the windows. This will ensure that there are no openings and will let the air inside when the windows are kept open. You have a mesh door at the entrance. Now a days you get good looking window meshes (not the old nylon meshes).
You can get rid of the lizards which are already in your house by spraying HIT on them. They will lie still when this sprayed and you can get rid of them.
Hope you will have lizard free house soon. Even I am dead scared of lizards.

Lizards mostly come during rainy season when there is lots of flies and insects are there.
To avoid lizards
1.We use some HIT or BAYGON spray.
2.Use chalk piece for lizard.
3.Can keep egg shells in frequent places of lizard.
4.If the lizard is found near tube light tie a piece of paper.
5.There is a electrical device called LIZARD REPELLENT which will make a strange noise and make the lizard move away from that place.
Try these and make your kitchen lizard free:-)

Why do you want to control the lizards in your yard? Lizards are generally beneficial because they eat insects. They can eat good insects as well as bad.
OK how ever it may be ,here are the tips
Keep your place clean. A dirty/messy house invites all sorts of pests by providing both food and hiding places for them. If you are providing these things for insects, you are providing food for lizards.
so You can get rid of lizards by eliminating insect populations on which the lizards feed
