Iguana Damage to Residential and Commercial Property
If you’ve ever wondered how much damage iguanas can cause to your residential or commercial property. We are here to answer those questions:
1) Iguanas Will Destroy your Landscaping
First of all, it depends on what kind of property you are trying to defend from the iguana invasion. Are you a homeowner? Or maybe you own some private property with landscaping costing you thousands of dollars annually? Are you the property manager in charge of the greens, sand traps, and fairways of a country club golf course or two? Tens of thousands of dollars in tropical flowers and other seasonal plants can be damaged or completely consumed by the iguanas before they have fully taken root.
2) Iguana Control can Prevent Seawall Damage
Iguanas love to bask on seawalls and soak up the sun, but this can be very costly for homeowners or commercial property owners located on the beach or along the Intracoastal waterway. Iguanas are known for tunneling down along and beneath seawalls. This can result in water getting underneath the foundation of the seawall – creating a runoff that would end up costing tens of thousands of dollars in damage.
3) Iguana Poop is Linked to Salmonella
If you live near a water source, there is a good chance you are close to a pool deck, seawall, dock, or pier—iguanas use all of these surfaces for one common thing. Can you guess what it is? Iguanas use these places to lay out in the sun and where you find iguanas laying out. You will also find iguana poop every other step of the way. Iguana feces can be very hazardous to the health of pets and people if exposed to the salmonella bacteria that inhabit iguana defecate. The best thing you can do is hire a professional to trap and remove your iguanas. You will want them to powerwash and disinfect all surfaces that may have been contaminated with salmonella from the iguana’s poop.
Cities and Property Owners Save Money with Iguana Control Services
With all of the responsibilities that come with managing any municipality, it is an absolute necessity in Florida to maintain your canals and public waterways. By hiring Wildlife Removal Services, you can help prevent the accelerated erosion caused by invasive iguana infestations. Iguanas will tunnel into the sides of canals that control the water runoff, which helps prevent flooding during major storms and hurricane season. Inevitably, the erosion of the runoff channels and other waterways caused by iguanas will affect all adjacent property owners costing tens of thousands of dollars in damages to the surrounding infrastructure.

Effective Iguana Exclusion Services for your Home and Property
After the iguanas are trapped and removed from your property, there are only a few things you can do to prevent iguanas from breaching your home or infesting your property in the future.
First, let us talk about what not to do:
1) Do not waste your money on any poisons, toxins, or other fake deterrents or repellents. These methods do not work, and the iguanas will consume your entire landscape while you are waiting for these “magic remedies” to take effect.
2) Scent and sound repellents do not work. Do not waste your money on alternative iguana repellents that never live up to expectations. Some companies and websites recommend planting fruits or flowers that iguanas don’t eat as a form of natural deterrent. This has shown to be ineffective. The iguanas will still destroy your landscaping after you’ve gone and spent even more money on plants.
Instead, give us a call and let us professionally seal all of your roof tiles. Iguanas tend to burrow under your loose roof tiles damaging the waterproof membrane that keeps your home comfortable and your attic dry. By sealing your roof tiles and filling any other potential points of entry, you can save yourself thousands of dollars in possible water and mold damage to your attic and ceiling.
