I operate on the concept that fortification is futile.
As you are probably aware, Iguanas can swim, dig, run,
climb and burrow (everything but fly and I have seen them
to that from tree to tree).
Removing Iguanas is what I do.
Many Iguana businesses offer what is said to be a "system"
that will protect your home and property. These systems
require wrapping all trees with a material to prevent iguanas
from climbing.( not an appealing look for your landscaping design). Additionally, the dock pilings must be wrapped
as well as the entire dock perimeter. And, of course,
the entire property must have special anti-iguana fencing
with a 5-6 foot anti-climb barrier surrounding your pool.
They will supply and install all of these items.
This "feel good" approach is very expensive and not very
My point is, iguanas will access your property
from your neighbors dock, dig under the fence, move
from other trees to yours or simply walk up your driveway.
They are too smart and too many in number for this
type of approach to be successful.
This is the price you pay in deciding not to terminate (kill) them. A good and noble position. However, they will
continue to breed and each pair will produce about
25 offspring next year that will survive and grow to be adults.
Females lay an average of 35 eggs per year.
Trapping iguanas then releasing them elsewhere would
only move the problem to another location.
IT IS ALSO AGAINST THE LAW..
