Exotics - Iguanas and Peacocks


Nuisance Wildlife Removal can take care of nuisance iguanas.Adult iguanas are herbivores' feeding on foliage, flowers, and fruit. They will occasionally eat animal material such as insects, lizards and other small animals, nestling birds and eggs. Juveniles eat more animal material, especially insects, and hatchling green iguanas eat the droppings of adult iguanas to acquire the gut bacteria that help them digest plant material. Males are territorial against other males, but are not territorial against females and juveniles. These large lizards like to bask in open areas; sidewalks, docks, seawalls, landscape timbers, or open mowed areas. If frightened, they dive into water (green iguanas and basilisks) or retreat into their burrows (spiny tailed iguanas).

Nuisance Wildlife Removal can take care of nuisance iguanas.This habit of diving into the water to escape makes green iguanas very difficult to capture. Basilisks and anoles generally eat insects and small vertebrate prey, but Knight anoles occasionally eat small fruits and flowers as well. Iguanas eat valuable landscape plants, shrubs, and trees, orchids and many other flowers, as well as dooryard fruit like berries, figs, mangos, tomatoes, bananas, etc. Iguanas do not eat citrus. Burrows that they dig undermine sidewalks, seawalls, and foundations, allowing erosion.

Droppings of iguanas litter areas where they bask. This is unsightly, causes odor complaints, and is a possible source of salmonella bacteria. Adult iguanas can bite, cause severe scratch wounds with their sharp claws, and deliver a painful slap with their tail.

Iguanas can be captured and removed from private property at any time without special permits. They are considered exotic unprotected wildlife. They may be caught by hand, noose pole, net, or traps. Only live traps and snares are legal in the State of Florida. Nuisance Wildlife Removal can take care of nuisance peacocks.


Peacocks are members of the pheasant family. The word peacock actually refers to the male bird, while females are called peahens, and the young are peachicks. A group of these together is referred to as a bevy. The trademarks of this bird are blue, green, and gold feathers, and the appearance of what looks like an eye, right in the center of some of the feathers.

They also have a crest, or crown, on top of their head, making them appear very regal. The peacocks’ beak is on average an inch long on a full-grown bird. Reaching heights of over three feet, an adult peacock’s ‘train’ of tail feathers can be sixty inches in length.

Peacocks will also eat just about anything they can get their beaks into, so be sure that garbage and debris such as paper is not left in their reach. They have been known to eat cat and dog food also.

Peacocks are naturally a wild bird, and are often kept in zoos or natural protected habitats. Some people, however, like to keep them as pets. This is fine as long as you know what you are getting into, and what to feed them, etc. The problem with peacocks is that they are a very large, wild bird and while they are gentle in nature, they will fight with each other.

Nuisance Wildlife Removal can take care of nuisance peacocks.Peacocks in suburban areas may see their reflection in the side of a car, and very greatly scratch and damage the car trying to “fight” with their reflection. In addition they have been known to ruin people’s gardens by eating the flowers.

Nuisance Wildlife Removal has developed a human trapping program to catch unwanted peacocks and transport them to a peacock refuge. Humane trapping is the ONLY way to go about ridding your neighborhood of peacocks.
