New consumer and inspection article: Woodpecker Damage Prevention and Inspection

December 3rd, 2011

It might surprise you to learn that millions of dollars are spent annually to repair damage caused by woodpeckers. Their natural target is trees, but woodpeckers sometimes prefer houses for the warm layers of insulation found beneath the siding and drill unsightly holes that allow heat to escape and rainwater to enter. Fortunately, there are ways to discourage woodpeckers from drilling into a house without harming them, but you must first find out whether they’re foraging for insects, excavating a nest site, or merely drumming to signal a mate. Each of these behaviors requires a different exclusion approach, which you can read about in our new article on Woodpecker Damage Prevention and Inspection.
