Appearance of Iguanas
While there are many wild iguanas in Southern and Central America, green iguanas are the most common in the United States. They can reach up to six feet long from head to tail and weigh about eight to seventeen pounds. Although their name states otherwise, the pests can differ in color from dark gray or pale brown to bright orange or dull green. Along with comb-like spines that run across these reptiles' backs, they are covered in scales and have a membrane that hangs underneath their jaws.
Detection & Identification
Although these pests have a unique look, they are commonly confused with other reptiles. For example, because of its dark color, a species known as the spiny-tailed iguana is frequently identified as an alligator by mistake. In fact, they are much smaller than adult alligators. Though iguanas are frequent invaders of yards, they are not aggressive towards people unless they feel threatened. The massive lizards enjoy basking in the sun in grassy areas, along driveways, and near seawalls.
Iguana Issues & Control
Iguanas will strike with their powerful claws, tails, and jaws when provoked. They can also cause foundations, driveways, and seawalls to crack or collapse when they burrow underneath. In addition to destroying landscaping by feeding on plants, trees, and other foliage, the reptiles leave odorous droppings wherever they sunbathe. Iguana poop can contain and spread Salmonella, a major cause of food poisoning. Because it is illegal to relocate wildlife in some areas, homeowners should contact the experts at Critter Control to safely manage iguana problems.

Best Bat Removal
Brandon was out to please and make out lives easier with out bat situation. Above and beyond of the call of duty and got the job done. Thank you!
BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa
Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.
Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.
Because bat droppings
can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic
On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.
He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
