There are so many iguanas in South Florida they literally fall from trees. Okay, fine. The unusually cold winter days in February was what actually caused iguanas to fall from trees, but South Florida does have an iguana problem.
It’s not just the public land managers that feel the pain. If these invasive reptiles make themselves at home on your commercial property, they could certainly cause a lot of damage.
- Landscape. Iguanas are predominately herbivores that feed on foliage, and flowers. Their feeding can damage and destroy landscape trees, plants, shrubs, and flowers.
- Property. Iguanas like to dig lengthy tunnels. In fact, wildlife experts have seen 80+ foot tunnels under and around properties, creating major structural damage to the property.
- Personal. While experts say iguanas aren’t dangerous to humans, they are known to bite, scratch, and slap with their tails to defend themselves.
