IGUANA CONTROL

 

Iguana lizards are considered to be an “invasive” animal here in the United States. Indigenous to Central and South America, Iguana are sold and kept as pets here in the states. This has indirectly led to their existence in the wild. Currently, they can be found in Florida, Louisiana, Texas a few other southern states with climates that can support their lifestyle.

IGUANA INVASION *

IGUANA ON LEASHOnce in the wild, it was just a matter of time before released iguana began to conflict with people. In South America, they can grow to 4-5 feet in length, but here in the US, it’s uncommon to find them larger than 3 feet. But for most people, seeing the iguana in the yard is unsettling!

IGUANA IN THE YARD *

An iguana can exist in arid or wet climates. During a drought, they’ll routinely settle close to water. This leads them to pools, streams, ponds and any body of water where food will be active for them to harvest. Iguana eats a broad range of plants so any yard with healthy green growing shrubs, flowers or bushes can become their home.IGUANA IN POOL

HOW TO KEEP IGUANAS AWAY *

The good news is chasing iguanas away is pretty easy. Just applying iguana repellent where they are entering the yard and spraying any plant you want to protect will get them top relocate immediately.

 

IGUANA REPELLENT *

First, use repellent granules where they are known to enter your property. The best iguana repellent is made from an all natural, low impact blend of food grade actives. It comes in both granules and spray. Iguana will detect its presence and stay away from where it’s applied.

PEST RID GRANULES should be set out along trails, property borders, around foundations, alongside walkways, patios, decks and other areas where iguana are seen foraging, roosting or nesting.

The granules are not strong enough by themselves to chase them away, but they’re designed to both absorb and keep the liquid Pest Rid active longer. Typically they’ll extend the treatment a good 50-100%, so you don’t have to spray but once every 30-45 days. Coverage is 250 sq/ft per pound, so the 2 LB jar will treat up to 500 sq/ft.

NEXT APPLY IGUANA REPELLENT SPRAY *

Once the granules are in place, spray over the top with PEST RID SPRAY. The spray uses the same material as the granules but its a lot more potent. Iguana will literally leave immediately where Pest Rid is spray.

Be sure to spray over the granules so make them “super charged” with the odor. Spray by itself will last 2-4 weeks but when sprayed over the granules, you’ll get 30-45 days of protection.

GREEN IGUANA ON TREEIf iguana are on the home, treat gutters, downspouts, window shutters, electric boxes and areas where they like to roost or hide.  They’ll readily climb trees and like living in shrubs so treat these too if any are thought to be in the area. The quart size comes with it’s own trigger sprayer top; the gallon size will require a good pump sprayer to apply. 1 quart will cover up to 125 sq/ft; the gallon jug will treat up to 500 sq/ft. Both are ready to use so no mixing is required.

If you get the gallon size, you’ll need a good PUMP SPRAYER like the one above to apply it. Alternatively you can get a TRIGGER SPRAYER which has a 3 foot long hose that fits into the jug making it easy to apply right out of its container.

SET OUT IGUANA TRAPS *

Lastly, set out some baited IGUANA GLUE TRAPS. We have two types. One is for use inside the home and can be placed along baseboards, under furniture, on countertops or anywhere iguana are foraging.

These traps are very effective at catching and holding common nuisance iguana. They include “pellets” which are essentially insect pheromones which are dropped onto the glue trap prior to setting them out. Undetectable by people but quickly found by foraging iguana, these boards can be used to trap out local populations that have made their way inside the home.

For outside trapping or if you have large iguana, get the OUTSIDE GLUE TRAP. These are commonly used for snakes and small animals but work great on iguana up to 3 feet long. They’re rain proof and can be used in the garden, flower beds, around the homes foundation as well as inside the home in crawl spaces or attics. They are quite sturdy and will last many years and you can get replacement glue pads as needed.

Hello,

Which of your glue traps and bait/lures do you recommend to trap iguanas in South Florida from 8 inches to 3 feet long?

Thank you,
