The sapsuckers are starting to drill my holly. They've drilled just about
every available inch of the nieghbor's holly, which happens to be right next
to mine, and now they've crossed the fence. Is there anything I can put on
the bark, or around the trunk to repel them?
Probably hanging out some suet (stuck in a block of hollow-wood) to
ward them off from those tree trunks? Or check the tree what attracts
the sapsuckets to the holly this time? Dead tree branches and insects
could be attracting them.

daub some tangle foot on the holly.. just enough to make it sticky. or use bird
netting wrapped around the trunk.

To discourage sapsuckers from feeding on a favorite shade tree, wrap
hardware cloth or burlap around the area being tapped or smear a
sticky repellent material, such as bird tanglefoot, on the bark.
