Nuisance Bird Deterrents

Exclusion Net

Woodpecker Exclusion Net is one of the most effective methods of excluding woodpeckers from wood siding beneath eaves of a house is to place lightweight plastic bird-nets over the area. Use a 3/4-inch mesh and maintain at least 3 inches of space between the nets and the damaged building so that birds cannot damage the mesh. Secure nets so birds have no way to get behind it. If installed properly, nets are barely visable from a distance and offer a long time solution to the damage problem.

Repair All Holes

Repair holes quickly and completely to stop damage by woodpeckers and get rid of the woodpeckers for good. Place metal of hard-plastic sheeting over the pecked areas on siding to offer permanent protection from continued dmage. Woodpeckers can peck through aluminum if they can secure a foothold from witch to work.  

Visual Frightening

Visual frightening devices come in a variety of types. Devices that combine visual with motion are believed to be more effective than stationary devices. Stretch strips of Irri-Tape or Mylar tape across the damaged area or attach them to the eaves to hang down. Irri-tape eliminated woodpecker damage at 50% of homes tested in NE US. One-inch wide strips of aluminum foil, brightly colored plastic strips, and aluminum pie pans hung near the damage may be effective. Toy plastic twirlers or windmills fastened to eaves may frightened woodpeckers. Motion-activated spiders are successful in reducing damage in some areas.

Woodpecker 411

Woodpeckers have a sharply-pointed beak for excavating holes into wood and a long tongue that can be extended to dislodge insects present inside. Stiff feathers are present on the tail and serve as a prop when climbing vertical surfaces.

Most woodpeckers live year-round in the same area in small social groups. A few species such as northern flickers and red-headed woodpeckers are migratory.

Most woodpeckers feed primarily on tree-living or wood-boring insects, but may feed on a variety of other insects including ants, wasps, and bees found on trees. Many woodpeckers also feed on berries, fruits, nuts, and seeds particularly when insects are not available. Woodpeckers use sharp, pointed beaks to drill into trees in seach of food and to excavate nest activities.  

Woodpeckers breed in the spring, commonly laying 2-6 eggs. Incubation is short, usually lasting 11-14 days, but longer for larger species.
