We are Des Moines Pest Animal, a full service wildlife removal company servicing Altoona, IA. We know that snakes and other animals don’t wait for office hours to come right inside your home, and that’s why we’re on-call around the clock, 24/7, ready to pick up the phone and make you a same-day appointment with one of our friendly and experienced operators. We have tools and equipment for every and any critter, although we don’t ever use poisons to get the job done. This goes against our humane best practices, and where destruction of the animal is the only option, such as, by law, we will only take the most humane, legal route. Poison is not humane, not even for rats. Where possible and permitted, we relocate every critter we remove in a brand new, safe, and non-confrontational location. It is necessary to drive around ten miles or more to relocate some of the smarter, well-traveled critters that might invade your home this year, and we’d like to save you the trouble. We’ll find that animal, no matter where it is hiding in your home, and then we’ll trap or remove it, taking the animal as far as is necessary to stop it from coming right back ‘home’ again. Call us now at 515-204-2863 for a solution to your wild animal problem.
