Carpinteria wildlife control tip of the month: How to kill iguanas
Iguanas are not illegal to exterminate in the United States. They are considered an invasive animal. This means where there is one; there is likely to be more to follow soon after. Rats and mice are invasive creatures.
Iguanas may be pretty and cool to watch. However, they are quite a nuisance animal. They can carry diseases such as salmonella. This is the only thing about them that is off-putting. Iguanas have incredibly long claws that make them excellent diggers. Along with their claws, their teeth are razor sharp and can do quite a bit of damage. They can do harm to not only adults but children as well as pets if they feel cornered.
If you find that you have a Carpinteria animal control iguana issue and you capture one, there are a few things you can do. First, you cannot release it back into nature. They are not indigenous to the United States and therefore cannot be returned to nature. If you do release it into the environment, you could be charged with a misdemeanor. If you happen to catch on there are three options for you; keep it, give it to someone for a pet, or put it asleep.
These green beasts are herbivores, meaning they typically have plant-based Carpinteria pest control diets. They use their sharp claws to dig for their fruits and to dig burrows. If you've found that you have an iguana problem, there are a few things you can do. You can call the animal control center and have them come deal with the situation, or you can trap them on your own.
However, if you feel the problem is too much or you don't want to go that route. You can euthanize them. Since iguanas are invasive animals, there are no federal restrictions on killing them. The only limitation is that it must be as humanely and as quick as possible.
In many states, it is illegal to discharge a gun inside the city limits or around suburban Carpinteria wildlife removal areas. If a person intentionally harms, harasses, torments or starves the animals are subject to a hefty fine and sometimes even a felony conviction.
There are ways to euthanize a Carpinteria animal trapping iguana without causing it any pain. While there are no clear guidelines for killing an iguana, there are a few ways to humanely ways do this. One way is blunt force trauma. By getting close enough, one sharp swing of a club or a bat to the head will be quick and painless.
