How to trap iguanas?

Trapping Iguanas Iguanas make most of the time incredibly attractive and interesting pets, but there are certain states in the United States of America where iguanas can be real pests. Iguanas range from being only a few inches in length and up to six feet in length. Some iguanas can even weigh over fifteen pounds in some instances.

Although iguanas are not necessarily a huge problem in rural areas where they can live in the wilderness, they are a big problem when they invade urban areas and suburban areas. Once iguanas invade urban and suburban areas, they will use their large claws and teeth to deliver nasty bites to people and domestic animals. This is why you should immediately trap iguanas once they invade your property.
