When it comes to WOODPECKER REMOVAL
Our staff is dedicated to resolving your nuisance woodpecker issue quickly, safely, and at an affordable price.
Woodpeckers—like most birds—present a health issue to humans through contact with bird droppings. Bird waste accumulates in and around the holes created by woodpeckers.
Bird droppings can carry a range of zoonotic diseases, including histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and salmonellosis.
Woodpecker damage to wood and stucco homes can become extensive and expensive. The longer woodpeckers are left to attack your home the harder it will be to deter and remove them.
Woodpeckers are protected at both the federal and state level. Removal requires the use of both physical and visual deterrents, which are only effective if installed correctly and maintained.
Homeowners that attempt to deter and remove woodpeckers often get more than they bargained for. In most cases, "do it myself" trappers do not understand or follow state laws governing woodpecker removal, use the wrong control methods, and fail to properly exclude future animals from returning.

Nuisance Woodpeckers and Woodpecker Removal
There are seven species of woodpeckers in Ohio. The majority of these birds spend their time pecking and foraging dead and dying trees. Woodpeckers peck to forage for insects, to announce their presence in a territory (“Drumming”), and to excavate cavities for nesting. Woodpecker removal and woodpecker control become necessary when they turn their attention to your home.
Woodpeckers often become a nuisance when they turn their attention to a home with natural wood siding. They will also attack eaves, stucco, window and door frames, and trim boards. Anything on a home made of wood or has the appearance of wood is fair game for a woodpecker. Once they create holes in a structures siding other birds find these as convenient nesting sites. This creates an even larger problem, one with potential health concerns for you and your family.
Many homeowners attempt to solve the problem themselves. When woodpecker removal is done incorrectly the result is frustration and more woodpecker damage to the home. The key to woodpecker control and woodpecker removal is to address the issue as soon as the birds show interest in your home, and to use the proper tools and techniques to deter the birds. The longer you allow them to remain the more difficult and costly woodpecker removal becomes.
Before you decide to go to extremes, keep in mind that woodpeckers are protected by federal and state laws. They may only be captured or killed with a special permit issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or the USDA.
