Another very common scenario we are often called upon to deal with in regards to bird control, is to deal with the existence of woodpeckers.
As destructive as they are pretty, woodpeckers can cause extreme damage to the wood siding on homes with their incessant pecking. Woodpeckers will typically attack your home’s wood siding for one of two reasons:
- To search for food – such as carpenter ants and bees or other insects; or
- To attract a mate.
To solve your woodpecker issue, our first line of attack is to control their food source by making an application designed to remove the particular insect they are feeding on (carpenter ants, carpenter bees, etc.,). Once the food source is controlled, the woodpeckers will also be controlled. We will then thoroughly clean the site and fix any woodpecker holes. Should this not work, we will install a woodpecker repellent to deter them.
For instances where they’re pecking specifically for mating purposes, we install a deterrent from the get-go.
