Raccoon in the Attic

  • There is a raccoon living in my attic. It is so noisy at night when I’m trying to sleep and it’s driving me crazy! How can I get rid of this raccoon? Will you come and remove it?

    It is the time of year when we often have encounters with wildlife, good or bad. For your peace of mind, your situation does warrant removal of the animal from your property. This can be a little tricky because there might be a nest of baby raccoons in the attic as well. Polk County Conservation can offer advice over the phone but does not have staffing or equipment to remove problem wildlife from homes or businesses. There are several businesses in the Des Moines area that provide this service for a fee. To find a list of businesses that remove wildlife from homes or businesses, look under the yellow pages under pest control. Good luck!
