Iguana Trapping and Removal in Cape Coral, FL

Trust Us to Safely Get Rid of Iguanas from Your Home or Property

When you live in Cape Coral, FL, or really anywhere in Southwest Florida, you have to deal with iguanas. In fact, there are thousands of these wild lizards roaming around the region. Green iguanas, which are the most common in Florida, can grow to almost five-feet long and weigh close to 20 pounds. While iguanas can be found mostly outside in yards, driveways, near water, and trees (they like to climb), they have been found in attics and other areas of the home. When you need to get iguanas removed from your home or property, call AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services at (239) 440-7783 at any time of the day.

Iguanas are Destructive and Carry Diseases

Iguanas are docile and tend to avoid humans, but they will defend themselves if they feel threatened. They have extremely powerful jaws and claws, and the reptiles can lash with their tails. The bigger problem with iguanas, though, might be their destructive behavior and the diseases they carry. They feed on plants, trees, flowers, and fruit, and their waste can contain and spread Salmonella, which causes food poisoning. Iguana droppings, which have a solid component, and a liquid component, are often left in yards, raising the chances for humans of getting infected.

Digging Up Yards to Lay Many Eggs

Iguanas will burrow deeply into yards to lay their eggs, ruining lawns. Female iguanas will lay 20 to 71 eggs per year in yards that get lots of sun, and the young are hatched 10 to 15 weeks afterward. Iguanas never come back to check on the eggs, so it might seem like a good idea to get rid of the eggs, but the eggs may contain the Salmonella bacteria. Your best move would be to contact AAA Wildlife Trapping & Removal Services to remove the eggs and the iguanas from your Lee County, Charlotte County or Collier County property or attic.
