Woodpecker Management Services
Woodpeckers are a fairly large bird known for drilling into trees in search of bugs and as a social activity with fellow woodpeckers. Even if you are not familiar with woodpeckers' appearance, you likely know their damage. New Hampshire has two common species of woodpeckers: the Melanerpine woodpecker and black-backed woodpecker. If woodpeckers are giving you a hard time and destroying your trees or home's siding, call Critter Control of New Hampshire today! You can also request a woodpecker removal estimate here.
Getting rid of woodpeckers is no easy feat, because these large birds are persistent. Finding a good place to nest and a sustainable food source is all woodpeckers need to make themselves at home on your property. Some of the best ways to get rid of woodpeckers include:
- Woodpecker deterrent (like scaring them away or installing shiny objects near desired nesting sites)
- Removing potential food sources like insect infestations
- Bird netting
They are typically not a threat to humans physically. Woodpecker damage can come in many forms, but the most prominent is home damage and tree damage. By opening trees and siding of your home, woodpeckers can be responsible for structural decay, pest infestations and diseases. An indication of woodpecker presence often appears on buildings, eaves, and trim boards.
If woodpeckers are well-established in an area, it is likely that they won't want to leave willingly—and that's where we come in!
