Common Wildlife Problems in the Cedar Rapids - Iowa City Area  

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is the second-largest city in the state. Located on both banks of the Cedar River, the city is prone to flooding. Rebuilding, relocation, and urban expansion have driven a vast array of species, including squirrels, raccoons, and bats, into the city and its suburban neighborhoods. 


While they are great for limiting insects, bats are a nuisance when they enter attics, garages, and living spaces. As a known rabies vector, bats are hazardous to people and pets. The buildup of bat guano beneath roosts also produces foul odors and may develop mold spores that are dangerous if inhaled. 


Squirrels are one of the most common nuisances in eastern Iowa homes. They are excellent climbers and use their skills to climb onto roofs, where they gain access to homes and garages. Cold Iowa winters drive squirrels indoors, where they will nest and potentially damage electrical wiring, become trapped in vents, or even spread disease. 


Raccoons prefer to live near water, making Cedar Rapids a natural home. Raccoons commonly scavenge for scraps in unsecured trash cans or nest under porches. These animals can transmit several diseases as well as parasites, including canine distemper and raccoon roundworm. 

Additional Iowa Nuisance Animals 

Skunks and coyotes also frequent Cedar Rapids and its suburbs. Though they tend to keep to themselves, a skunk will spray a foul musk if threatened, and pet dogs are typical targets. Coyotes avoid people, but if given food will return to the source -- often too close to neighborhoods where children and small pets could be in danger.
