Tree squirrels are one of the most common animals in Iowa. They are often found in all environments, including backyards and any open spaces. They're known for digging holes in lawns to store food. While squirrels are usually found outside, they can cause significant damage to the inside of homes, where they can panic and act aggressively. The presence of squirrels in or around a home or business may be identified by ripped shingles, torn vents, or shredded insulation.
Another frequent visitor to Des Moines yards, raccoons are notorious for knocking over trash bins and eating out of pet bowls. Raccoons are primary carriers of the rabies virus, as well as raccoon roundworm and canine distemper. Iowa residents who suspect raccoon activity in a crawl space or under the deck should seek expert aid to remove the pest.
Bats are common home invaders in the Des Moines area. Colonies may take up residence in attics and even window curtains and blinds. These infestations can be especially terrifying for homeowners when the bats become active at night. In addition to making themselves at home in your residence, bats can cause significant damage with their piles of droppings. These droppings are capable of developing mold spores that, if inhaled, can cause histoplasmosis.
