Many of the calls Nuisance Wildlife Rangers receives from homeowners in reference to Iguanas are that they are digging in their yards. These pests will dig under foundations of homes, embankments, and under docks to create burrows to live in and have their young. The damage from the burrows can lead to very expensive repairs needing to be done and can even lead to the weakening of your homes structure.
Most people don’t think of iguanas as nuisance wildlife, but these reptiles can cause plenty of problems. For starters, they are a health hazard as they carry salmonella and leave their waste in your home.
Iguanas are also known to damage gardens, which can be very annoying if you’ve spent hours or days perfecting your lawn. These animals eat all sorts of plants, from hibiscus to tomatoes. They also burrow in your yard, leaving gaping holes in front of your home.
Thankfully iguanas aren’t that hard to remove, and you can get rid of them by following some simple steps.
The easiest way to remove a Iguana from your property is to trap them. Iguanas typically enjoy a diet of insects and spiders so it is best to use them as bait when trying to trap a Iguana. Our Wildlife Experts will find the best trap that will be able to trap the Iguana and set it in a place that the nuisance wildlife has been seen. Once the Iguana has been caught, we will humanely remove the animal from your property.
