I’m looking for a repellent spray I can apply to my house to stop woodpeckers from pecking on it. They seem to like my house. Maybe it’s the siding or paint I don’t know. But every spring they start pecking and chipping away at certain areas and the damage is significant. What can I spray to stop them and keep them away?
Woodpeckers pecking are almost always targeting something in the wood. My guess is you have some kind of insect that must be living in the siding if the woodpeckers are working large areas and not creating nests. You can read up on why taking away the woodpecker food will really help in our WOODPECKER article.
But since their season is about to start, I suggest you get some ATTACK SPIDERS installed around the home. These work really well and will stop any bird from actively landing where these spiders are deployed.
I also suggest setting out some BIRD TAPE to cover the peripheral areas where you don’t necessarily need a spider. So if you set these two deterrents out now and followup by trying to figure out what it is the woodpeckers are seeking, you should be able to make the home woodpecker proof and keep them away for good.
