Iguana be gonna

Kim Gabel

Abstract


Iguanas are no longer just household pets, but are becoming landscape pests in south Florida-eating ornamental landscape plants, burrowing holes next to sea walls, defecating on docks, and swimming with condo residents in the community swimming pool, to name a few problems. A survey was conducted of Florida Extension Agents, University of Florida wildlife researchers, and south Florida botanical gardens that focused on information about: 1) counties that have wild iguana populations; 2) what plants iguana species eat; and 3) what measures are successful for controlling iguanas.
