Woodpecker Control

The need for woodpecker control in the United States grows increasingly more every year. Woodpeckers are protected under the United States migratory bird act and have regulations pointed towards their control.
We suggest before you attempt any type of wood pecker removal and woodpecker control that you consult your local Department of Natural Resources to check on rules and regulations governing this type of bird. These birds types have many different types of subspecies and all local and federal laws should be adhered to when dealing with these birds.

Note: if you break the law trying to control these birds, you can and will be handled by the Federal fish and wildlife service.

Types of damage woodpeckers do?

The types of damage often associated with woodpecker control is holes being pecked into the side of houses, excessive noise being made by beating on the side of the house and from the severe screeching noises that are made by their presence.
There are logical natural answers for every problem associated with woodpeckers.
The first problem is woodpeckers knocking holes into the side of a house: this can be explained naturally as a woodpeckers search for food is it's number one priority. Usually the area the woodpecker is knocking holes in the side of house, there is a infestation of one of several different kinds of bugs some types of those insects being carpenter bees, carpenter ants, termites or some other type of bug larva.
The second problem is when a woodpecker makes unnecessary noises beating its beak on something metal: This is called drumming, a woodpecker drums in order to naturally attract a mate in nature. He who makes the loudest noise always wins the girl! This is part of the woodpeckers mating ritual.
Often woodpeckers will nest in the attic portions of holes or inside the interior wall of homes: This happens because a woodpecker has inadvertently not a round hole into the side of the house and the woodpecker has discovered the cavity which would make a very nice nest for the woodpecker.
These problems can be very difficult to control because of the state and federal laws governing the control of woodpeckers.
