For a woodpecker pecking on Cedar wood siding problem:
Anyone use the "Terror Eyes" balloon (with the holographic eyes) product ?
Any luck with ?
Any other suggestions on how to keep them away would be MOST appreciated.
Live in New England.
I too have cedar siding (NE Ohio) and get many downy woodpeckers
trying to build nests in the siding.
I got some of that bright orange marking tape (like crime scene tape
but bright orange..they sell it at lowes and HD. It's just fabric or
vinyl or something; no adhesive) I took two pieces about 4 feet long,
doubled em up, and stapled them high up on the siding to make
streamers. I put two of these on their favorite side, and one on the
other sides. The slightest breeze makes them dance around.
I've been through two nesting seasons now, and although I occasionally
still hear a little drumming, I've not had any nest holes made since.
Very cheap to try. A little tacky looking perhaps, but hey, I live in
