The last two years a woodpecker has started poking holes in my t-1-11
siding. I live in Indiana. This winter I think I spotted the nest in a
tree very close to his 'favorite' side of the house. I'm thinking he
been coming back to the same nest year over year. If that makes sense I
would like to destroy his home. Will that help me? If yes, when will be
the best time to destroy the nest? Is it now, before he arrives or later
this spring when he has returned? Thanks for your help.
Woodpeckers are just like teenage boys who like to drive around slowly with
the radio on loudly and the bass on high. They think it attracts the
opposite sex, just like the male woodpeckers attract mates by drumming on
something that makes the loudest noise. Maybe a mobile of old CD's will
flash enough light around to scare them off. The woodpeckers, the teeners,
you're on your own.
In The UK, shops have been playing classical music for years to drive
loitering teens away until a new high frequency noise generator
technology was developed that only youngsters and not adults are
bothered by because adults can't hear it.
Teen away - Teenager repelling software
ugh... I would hate that... my hearing is pretty bad, honestly, but I
can still hear high frequency noises like the whine from a flyback
xformer in an old CRT... (a CRT with no signal going to it will drive
me absolutely apeshit until I find it and turn it off)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
I can hear them too but since I replaced all my monitors with wide
screen LCD's I haven't thought of it. I have a pair of Nokia 21"
CRT monitors that have a .22 dot pitch which makes pictures look
like 35mm projections. I love the picture but the damn things are
huge and weigh as much as a fat girl. ^_^
Had one this fall---he always came back to the same spot. Finally got rid
of him by spraying his favorite area with wasp & hornet insecticide. I
don't think it matters what you use, but obviously he didn't like what I did
because he never came back.
