Iguana Control in Fort Lauderdale Florida
- I made a special trip to southern FL and was treated to some iguana removal jobs with a friend of mine. Fort Lauderdale is swimming with iguanas! They infest the docks, canals and waterways! They infest the trees! They're coming out of the sewers!
Marching in giant packs across our fields! Slithering across our highways! Invading our libraries and schools! Eating all of our crops! Scaling the roof of your home! Coming up through your toilet!
Eating your children in the night! Well, these are exaggerations. They are merely nibbling at your children in the night. Still, there are iguanas in Fort Lauderdale. My friend catches them from time to time. For example, he caught one today. There it is. In the above photo.
Looking smart. This
iguana was just sitting in the customer's yard, not moving much. It was healthy and all, just lazy, I suppose. We snared it and boxed it and brought it to the Fort Lauderdale Herpetalogical Society. The fact is that this is a relatively common catch. I get a whole lot of iguana calls, and
have become an expert in their removal. They are far more common in southern Florida than in Orlando, where I work.
It's not like there's an iguana problem or infestation in north or central Florida. Most likely the few that I get up here are merely released pets. I don't believe that they've established any sort of permanent self-sustaining population base here in Orlando, but Fort Lauderdale is a
different story. They're out there. In the night. Waiting.
