A Cure for Woodpeckers Pecking on your House
We have a wood sided home that for the last several years has been pecked on by woodpeckers almost daily. They make very nice straight lines across the wood, and make lots of noise doing it. A few months ago, my husband put up some extra suet feeders that we had in the garage, and filled them with the blocks of suet. The woodpeckers and flickers love these feeders. We hang them on my hanging basket hooks around the house, and we get many different types of woodpeckers visiting them. Since the suet feeders have been up, there has only been one time when the birds starting pecking at the house, and that was when the suet blocks were gone. I can't say that it will work for everyone, but it sure works for us. Now, we have to figure out how to patch up all the holes in the siding.
