We have tools and equipment for every and any critter, although we don’t ever use poisons to get the job done.

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.

Des Moines Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month: Which Repellants Work for Getting Raccoons Out of My Chimney?

A highly significant thing which you need to know is that using poisonous repellents isn't legal or using the repellents which take away lives of animals isn't allowed. A good reason of why raccoons live in the chimneys is that you don't care to seal the small openings of chimneys off and because they need some food and shelter. For whatever reason, raccoons try to invade the chimneys and make themselves comfortable there.

So, here is a list of things which can help you to get Des Moines raccoons out of chimney instead of repellents:

Moth balls
as the name shows, it is used mainly for keeping insects away however due to its smell, a lot of people use it for getting rid of Iowa raccoons. The fact is that they have an odor which drives them away only for some days and as the odor fades, they may give a second visit, particularly if you don't seal and block all of the possible points of entry.
you need to soak cotton balls in ammonia and then throw them inside your Des Moines chimney. They have an odor which can definitely force the raccoons away for finding some another place but as the odor gets faded, they will come for sure. Another possibility is that they are most likely to avoid the areas which have ammonia balls and come to other parts of your chimney.

Iowa raccoon sprays
There exist every kind of sprays which have been made however most of them aren't quite effective. For yielding some good results, you can be pushed to use few of the them like a preventative step. After you start getting used to them, raccoons get used to a particular spray and then they won't replace themselves from that area.
