Woodpecker problem

Recommended Posts

Do not buy the owl, he'll bypass it for a few days and then he'll realize it's a fake, trust me. The only way to get rid of him the easiest is to shoot the SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS !!!er. I had to take a day off work to get rid of mine, but it was well worth it. Make sure the gun has some power, and a pellet gun wont do it more often than not unless you hit him perfect, but just hitting him might cause him to go elsewhere.

Buy a bb gun and shoot up the rest of your siding so that it all looks the same. People will think you're eclectic... or ghey.

He is denting up my siding something fierce

 

 

 

I had the same problem. He would wake me up at sunrise from the noise right outside my bedroom. We have tons of wildlife on my property.

 

The woodpecker was not considered that special by the family so I shot him with my pellet gun. Tough shot, but the scope helped.

I disagree. My pellet gun shoots 1000 feet per second. It works great even on large crows.

Hang a speaker out the window and play Quiet Riot's "Bang Your Head" as loud as you can.

 

You say that like it isn't a common occurrence at the Casa de Whomp.

Then you have an above average pellet gun. We're both avid hunters, and I dont claim to know more than you, but I have shot A LOT of wood peckers in my day.

If it is a Flicker, he is doing it to call to a mate or to tell another male Flicker this is his territory. The males peck at the metal vent on our chimney at 6:00 AM and then off and on during the day from mid March to mid May, and then finally has sex and babies and then quits. We have a fireplace in our bedroom and at 6:00 AM it sounds like a jackhammer on the roof.

 

Whether it is a Flicker or other kind of Woodpecker, keyword search Flicker drum roll or Flicker mating call and you will find advice. I think the most realistic resolutions as I remember were a plastic owl or metalic streamers.

Commercials on TV always say to see your doctor if it persists for more than 4 hours?

 

 

 

The word "persists" makes it sound like a chore. Why do you hate your pecker?

House across the street had holes last year where a woodpecker stood on the horizontal trim and pounded holes in the guy’s house. As long as you can't see damage I guess you live with it, but if you do… BB gun.

There is a woodpecker in my neighborhood that always pecks away at my oak tree in the front of my house which is fine. For the last 2 days it has been pecking my aluminum siding right in front of my house which is not good..any suggestions on how I can make him stop ?

 

 

A frying pan and some hot oil...

There is this man that has an artificial leg that is made out of wood. He's very self conscious of his leg, so he doesn't go out and socialize very often. Well his friends talk him in to going to going to a dance.

So he is sitting at the dance all alone and afraid to go ask somebody to dance. In corner of his eye he sees this girl walking up to him and its obvious that this girl has an artificial eye. She says standing in front of him "Would you like to dance". The man very excited replies "Would I! Would I!" The girl screams back at him pointing her finger "Peg leg, Peg leg".

Your correct on the pellet gun. It actually kicks a little. Its cost was similar to a .22. I purchased it because it is really quite once fired. We get some magpies and crows now again down by our small creek. Sometimes a skunk or a marrmot. There are a few home within 5 acres, and one farmer has a lot of cattle and freaks when we shoot a higher powered rifle or shot gun.

 

The pellet gun solved the varmit problem and keeps anyone from complaining.

Sounds like if this is the case all you have to do is give the little guy a handy and he will quit.
