Kansas City Woodpecker Control
Can woodpeckers enter your property?
Suburban, farmland, and heavily wooded areas are areas that typically accommodate woodpecker populations. Residents of wooden buildings are in particular danger of woodpecker attacks. These birds can cause structural issues by drilling into wood for food and nesting purposes.
Do woodpeckers harm people or property?
Woodpeckers do not actually harm humans, however they pose a great risk to property. They cause loud, irritating noises, and cause structural damange on the sides of buildings, eaves and trim boards. The birds construct different sizes of holes, depending on if they're using the holes for food or nesting purposes. Additionally, woodpeckers in tree can infect the trees, leading to disease and even death.
Control and Safety
Bird nets can prevent woodpeckers from causing damage to surrounding trees and structures. Devices that scare off the birds such as shiny, bright and mobile objects can also add protection. Preventative measures may not be enough to exclude well-established infestations in the area, in which case pest professionals such as ourselves are the only solution. Due to these factors, we strongly advise that you seek the help of professionals, rather that attempting do deal with woodpeckers yourself.
