Have you ever heard a mysterious sound that drove you crazy? The sound is a constant tapping that is about to drive you over the edge and then you finally figure it out: woodpeckers. Although Woody Woodpecker had the potential to annoy others, woodpeckers don’t often enter in the conversation of animal and pest control. They may be worrisome in a unique way, but woodpeckers still warrant a call to ALCO Woodpecker Control for woodpecker removal in New Jersey.
There are two different ways woodpeckers can make your life difficult and the first method is by damaging the trees on your property. When claiming territory, looking for food, or nesting, a woodpecker is forming some sort of hole in the tree. Nesting is the most damaging, but all of these punctures add up and can shorten the life expectancy of even the strongest trees. A weak or dead tree is more likely to drop big branches or fall on your house or car.
The second area affected by woodpeckers is your house. Food can only be found in trees that provide nourishing insects, but an area to claim territory or nest can be anything made out of wood. Structure damage can be incurred on any wooden part of your house that the woodpecker can get into with its beak. Sometimes a spot made of other material such as the chimney can be vulnerable too.
As with any animal control, DIY methods are always an option, but not the best one. Let the professionals at ALCO Woodpecker Control provide you with a permanent solution instead.
