Where do you live,cause you just usually let winter do the trick or you can take your misting bottle and refrigerate it so the water is cold therefore cooling your tank.

Shouldnt the temperature in Canada get low enough to cool the tank in the low 70s or 60s at least?

Sometimes it’s hard to "let nature happen" when you live in a colder climate where you have to heat your houses. Sometimes, the opposite happens where winter is the warm season and summer is the cool season (with the AC on).

Try making night a little longer than day hours. If you can, move her in the cooler part of your house (68-70). Sometimes cooling won’t work and you just have to wait it out. Make sure, whatever you do, that you separate her from the male.

Perhaps I should have said :Adjust the thermostat in the house?: but some houses dont have those either.

TO everyone who is giving this guy a hard time for not wanting to freeze his house to cool off his geckos just give him a break.

But i would recommend separating them and remove heat sources to get her to stop laying
