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 customer service! Last week we realized a family of cute birds were nesting in our roof soffit. The nest was right above our deck, and they were getting aggressive with our dogs and us. A super friendly service coordinator answered the phone right away. She was able to get us scheduled for the next day. The tech showed up on time, in a freak April snowstorm! He quickly addressed the issue, thoroughly explained what he did and when he would be back. He showed up right on time again, made sure our squatting birds were gone for good and completed the permanent fix where they were accessing the soffit. Probably one of the easiest service calls we’ve ever had! Thank you!

We had a nuisance woodpecker driving us insane drumming on the metal chimney cap. We called Brittni and she provided detailed information over the phone as to estimated costs and methods used. She promptly followed up everything with a detailed email. Scheduling was easy. Terrance was on-time and very pleasant to work with. He inspected the chimney for damage and for evidence of nests = none found! He installed two deterrents and wa on his way! Highly recommend!
