We appear to have a pare of “pileated” wood peckers in our wooded lot. Our house is 2 story in
the back and has many very large picture windows that have a sun screen film on the inside. This is slightly reflective on the out side. One of these woodpeckers is very persistent at pecking at these windows .He also is stripping a lot of bark from a large oak tree just behind our house.
What can be done out side of shooting these birds?
Thanks for any advice you can share.
Install some JUMPING SPIDERS onto the windows where they’ve been seen. As you can see in the video embedded on our product page, this motion is scary to birds. Any bird attempting to peck the window will activate the spider which will cause it to leave immediately. Install 1-2 on any tree you want to save and within a short period of time (1-2 weeks), they will move off your land to forage for food.
