Iguana Removal Services
Where did the Green Iguana come from? The Green Iguana or “American Iguana” are an invasive species that was introduced to Florida in the 1960s. This nuisance wildlife animal has been around for a while and its population continues to grow!
Are they dangerous? Well, it all depends. Green Iguanas do not pose a direct threat to humans unless they are cornered or mishandled. If you spot an Iguana in your yard please call an experienced wildlife removal specialist for help.
Do Iguanas spread disease? – Overall, Iguanas are like the “Green Rat” of south Florida. They can spread rather quickly and be very difficult to remove. These green exoctic critters can be very pretty to look at sometimes but also very disgusting when they get out of control. Iguanas carry “salmonella” in their intestinal tract which can be very harmful for humans and pets. Iguanas can defecate and it is said that they can defecate at least 8 ounces of feces a day.
Iguanas on the roof – If there’s one place Iguanas love to sunbathe is on your roof. South Florida is also known as the “Sunshine State,” and it’s no wonder these critters flourish so well here. For the most part, there are thousands of homes in Florida with “Spanish Style” roof tiles and this creates a hot plate for the Iguanas to lay on during the hot summer days for digestive purposes.
Iguanas in attic – Eventually when Iguanas decide that the sun is gone and it’s time to go indoors, it becomes more common for Iguanas to enter your attic and inside of your home.
