As an invasive species, iguanas can be a nuisance to homeowners by damaging landscaping, burrowing and leaving droppings in yards and pools.
Iguanas are not a protected species in Florida, except by anti-cruelty laws. They can be captured and removed from private property without special permits, using live traps or snares. Once captured, euthanasia is the most humane method of disposal. However, euthanasia is not recommended for use by homeowners or the general public, but by pest management professionals.
