While not native to Florida, iguanas can be seen running rampant in many parts of the state, particularly warmer, more southern regions. It is legal to trap iguanas as a resident of Florida; however, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, residents can re-release them into the wild without a permit. Animal Wildlife Trappers can help deter further iguana invasions, trap them, and remove them on your behalf in accordance with the law.
Unfortunately, iguanas can be a nuisance to home and business owners. In many cases, iguanas:
- Eat greenery and shrubs, trees, garden flowers, and fruits such as tomatoes, mangos, berries and figs from your garden
- Burrow under sidewalks and structures such as sea wells and other foundations
- Can be aggressive if large enough
- Contaminate areas with feces that can carry salmonella bacteria
