Raccoons are a major problem in Iowa with home and business
owners.  In the Spring, starting at mid March, female raccoons will birth
their litters of pups.  The size of the litter depends of the health and age
of the mother  but 3-6 little ones are the average.  The female raccoon
will birth the babies in some unusual and unwelcome places such as
attics, chimneys, interiors walls of houses,  doctor's offices,
warehouses, garages.  These are places Complete Wildlife Control
has removed raccoon litters.  The sound of young raccoons is bird like
with a "coo-coo" tone

In the fall, raccoons search for grubs in lawns.  They will systematically
destroy a lawn looking for the rich protein source.  Skunks will also
"grub" so it takes an expert to determine the culprit and correct course
of action.

All year long raccoon forage in dumpsters and fruit trees which in turn
creates raccoon droppings.  Raccoon droppings are medium dog sized
with seeds in them.

Raccoons have very dexterous fingers so they can destroy shingles and
soffit with ease.

A 62-year-old East Sandwich man was found dead of carbon monoxide
poisoning in his home Sunday morning after a raccoon crawled into his
chimney flue and blocked it, police and fire officials said.

“He was of such a size that it was a complete blockage of the products
of combustion from the gas appliance,” said Sandwich Deputy Fire
Chief Tom Corriveau. “So there was nowhere for them to go but back
into the residence.”

The victim was identified as John Van Nostrand by the Cape & Islands
District Attorney’s Office. Fire officials said Van Nostrand did not have
any smoke or carbon monoxide detectors in his home.

“We’re trying to get the word out to get carbon monoxide detectors and
make sure they’re operating properly because the craziest things can
happen that you would never think of,” Corriveau said.

Marion Larson, a biologist for MassWildlife, said that while it is
common for animals like raccoons and squirrels to seek refuge in
chimneys for warmth or protection from predators, homeowners should
take better measures to prevent instances like these.

“That’s unfortunately the extreme reason why you should be capping
your chimneys,” Larson said. “Those openings are very attractive for
