Wildlife Issues in Council Bluffs, IA

Due to its growing population, Council Bluffs, IA, is home to many nuisance pests. These opportunistic animals, including raccoons, bats, and squirrels, invade lawns and homes seeking food or nesting sites.

Raccoons in the City

A frequent sight in Council Bluffs, raccoons dig up gardens and knock over trash cans looking for a meal. These pests often den under porches or in sheds, but harsh weather may drive them to den in attics and chimneys as well. Iowa residents should never approach a raccoon, as it can spread rabies through bites or scratches.

Bats and Disease

While bats help control insect populations, they can create issues in neighborhoods. Bat colonies grow quickly and use buildings as roosts. When the animals move into attics or outbuildings, they bring parasites and diseases close to Iowa homeowners.

Squirrels in Iowa

Council Bluffs residents usually spot squirrels digging holes in lawns. The rodents prefer to nest high above the ground, so they may also infest attics. In addition to ripping up insulation, gnawing on rafters, and soiling ceilings, a squirrel carries fleas and ticks that can transmit illnesses to people and pets.

Other Pests in Council Bluffs

Skunks and mice are also common in Iowa. A skunk damages yards and gardens by tearing up turf while searching for insects. The powerful, lingering smell of their musk can cause problems as well. Mouse infestations in Council Bluffs homes are bad news, too. The pests contaminate stored goods and chew on wiring, wood, and plastic.

Excellent communications, execution and friendly. I highly recommend this company!

The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI

If you are in the market for this service, having Michelle and George take a look is a must! Unlike some other vendors, the people who come to the house and assess the job are the ones that will actually do the work, so you get to meet the people who will actually perform the work - no new people or subcontractors. Michelle and George are highly experienced, professional, and friendly - a pleasure to work with. They always came within the promised window, and were accessible by phone or text for any questions. Sincerely, highly recommend.

We had a great experience working with the crew from Critter Control San Jose. They patiently listened to our observations, we came up with strategies and ended up fixing suspect areas, trapping a couple of rats. Problem seems to have been solved and hope we don't need to call them again
