Do iguanas harm people or property?
As mostly herbivores, iguanas feed on plants, shrubs, trees, and flowers, making landscapes a prime source of food. Iguanas also eat various fruits, including berries, figs, mangos, tomatoes, and bananas, which may drive them onto farmland. When females nest, they do so underground in burrows they dig themselves or take from other burrowing animals. Their burrowing activities can weaken or undermine sidewalks, building foundations, and patios. Additionally, iguana droppings can become unsightly and carry disease-causing bacteria such as salmonella.
