Woodpeckers

Asked November 15, 2018, 10:13 AM EST

I have a woodpecker problem. They have made several holes in my cedar siding and are pulling out my insulation. I’ve tried plastic owls and hawks without no luck. Any suggestions?

Woodpeckers will damage areas when there are insects they are interested in. The link below details multiple ways to decrease the amount of insects present as well as scare off the woodpeckers. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/livingwith_wildlife/woodpeckers/index.html
