how to stop woodpecker from pecking at my house


I have a woodpecker that’s been pecking at my house for the past 2 weeks and I want it to go away. I’ve tried setting an inflatible owl up on the roof along with some moth balls but so far nothing has worked. What do you have that we can use?

Chasing nuisance woodpeckers away can be done if you are able to place some Bird Tape or a Jumping Spider where they’re active. Sometimes this is tough but both deterrents do a good job of repelling them. If they’re on the side of the house, use the Jumping Spider and anchor it to the soffit or roof overhang. If they’re around windows, use the Bird Tape. We have more options listed in our Woodpecker Control article.
