ENY-714: Dealing with Iguanas in the South Florida Landscape

Figure 12. Live traps prebaited and wired open (top) and set (bottom) for iguanas. When prebaiting a trap, move the food farther into the cage each day the food is eaten. Cover the wire on the bottom with leaf litter, mulch, or soil so the lizard can't feel the wire under its feet. Use a drift fence (board) to help guide the animal in the trap.
