Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

San Pedro Wildlife Removal Tip: Why is a Woodpecker Pecking on my House?

Why do you think a woodpecker is pecking on your house? You will need to understand that it is because of a lot of reasons. Read on in this article to know more about the reasons.

Attracts a Mate

The very first reason why a woodpecker is pecking on your house is that it proclaims its territory. In addition to that, it is attracting its mate. If it still pecks on your house, it could mean to say that it is in the process of mating. It will likely to stop in the event that the breeding has started. This is especially true during the summer season. Actually, you need to understand that they do not peck when they are in search of food.

Wants to Excavate a Roost Hole or Nest

It could have been possible that a woodpecker is pecking on your house as it wants to excavate a roost hole or nest. If it creates a nest cavity, it may be possible that the hole will be large and round. As per the nesting holes, they are built from the beginning of the breeding season. This will usually take place between April and then in May. Now, if you will eliminate a woodpecker from your house, you will need to do it before or even after the nesting season.

It Feeds on Insects that Live in the Siding

Another reason why a woodpecker is pecking on your house is that it feeds on insects that reside in the siding. If ever the bird looks for insects, expect that the holes will now be irregular and small. You will also need to contact an exterminator for you to eliminate the insect issue. You need to bear in mind that woodpeckers are very fond of the so-called larvae of leafcutter bees, grass bagworms and carpenter bees.

Stores Food

A woodpecker usually pecks on your house because it wants to store food. There are hundreds of acorn-sized holes into large houses or trees.

How to Force Them to Leave your House Alone?

In order to force them of leaving your house, it is essential using pinwheels, aluminum foil strips, windsocks and reflective tapes. They also keep them away by means of covering the affected area with the bird netting or burlap. If you will make use of netting, you need to taut it right and you need to set at least three inches from its siding. This way, the birds will be avoided from pecking right through it. Now, you have learned why is a woodpecker is pecking on your house!
