Iguanas are an invasive species to Florida. Therefore, demand exists to remove these invaders from properties that are being affected by their intrusive behavior and breeding patterns. They are agile and can run fast in short bursts, have claws that enable them to climb trees with ease, and can breed in overwhelming numbers. They are originally from South and Central America, Mexico, and some islands in the Caribbean.
By their sheer numbers, iguanas can cause long-term damage to the landscape of residential and commercial properties. They are very often considered by property owners to be pests that need to be removed or relocated. Iguanas can also leave their feces in areas like docks, porches, decks, patio areas, and even inside swimming pools.
