Iguanas as a nuisance in Southern Florida
We are experts in Iguana Control and Iguana Removal. Iguanas can be a very frustrating species to deal with as their diet includes just about everything a home owner uses in landscaping. An adult iguana can also destroy ornamental plants if it decides to make it's home in your yard. An iguana's natural instinct is to defecate near, and typically in, water. This means that an iguana living in your yard may be using your pool as it's bathroom. Their fecal material is a known carrier of salmonella, and can quickly dissolve in the pool's chemical bases, waiting for someone to accidentally swallow a mouthful. Iguanas also dig nesting burrows, which can crack sidewalks, ruin sea walls and in more serious cases, damage wall and house foundations.
With The dangers with iguanas do not stop at your landscaping. While the animal is not typically aggressive, any iguana owner can tell you they can be very dangerous. Nature has done its job well equipping iguanas for climbing and as a result their claws are razor sharp and very strong, and their teeth are dangerous than their claws. They have very sharp, jagged teeth, similar to a shark's mouth structure, to help them rip plant material up in order to eat it. So if an iguana feels threatened by you, your pet, or a family member and bites, it is going to leave a nasty wound and a potentially devastating scar, as the serrated teeth do not leave a clean bite.
The animals are also known to clamp down like a snapping turtle when they feel threatened and will not let go. Lizards and iguanas, in particular, carry a variety of bacterium in their mouth, and given the severity of the bites this particular animal can inject a lot of that bacterium which can cause infection in the victim.
