They are pecking at our shingles and making holes in them and we are feeding them. HELP!
The fastest way to stop them right away is to install some ATTACK SPIDERS where they are pecking. These will guard your house and chase them off until you solve the real problem which is no doubt “food” related.
And to get long term control, you’ll no doubt have to take away their food. My guess is you have some kind of insect in the shingles, like CARPENTER BEES, and until this problem is addressed, the woodpeckers will just keep coming around because they can hear the insect activity on the home.
