Woodpeckers And The Damage They Cause

​St. Louis Bird Control

We Are Here To Help

​Besides spreading disease and infection, bird droppings are so acidic they corrode metal and deface building exteriors.

Bird droppings cause slippery walking and working conditions, leading to potential accidents. Feathers and nesting debris can clog drains and gutters leading to property damages.

Trapper Joe's extensive training can help your business with reliable, effective and continuous protection. We are dedicated to providing a complete solution for all your commercial and residential needs.

Bird Control

Bird Exclusion, Preventative Maintenance, and Clean Up


Pigeons, starlings, sparrows, woodpeckers, and geese .

Nice birds. But once they invade a building or an area, their nests and droppings create an unsightly nuisance.  Birds may carry diseases which are capable of infecting humans, and bird droppings can promote soil conditions favoring development of such fungal diseases as histoplasmosis.

Bird/Woodpecker Repellent




Woodpeckers peck at wood for many reasons, some of which include :

  • to signal to other woodpeckers
  • to feed on insects under the wood
  • to make a roost or nest


Woodpeckers often drill into dead dying trees. Once these tree's are removed do to safety reasons, the woodpecker may start drilling on your house.

Here is why:  They are very territorial, and often return to old placed to drill.  When the trees are no longer there, they may begin drilling on your home. Woodpeckers particularly like houses with cedar siding. But they also are know to drill on redwood siding and siding that has been painted brown.  


​Drilling (or drumming) for nesting or roosting cavities creates large, deep holes in siding.  Woodpeckers may excavate several different cavities before deciding which one to use. They often drill nests on buildings up high under ledges, usually in corners.


 Male woodpeckers attract females and defend their territory by creating a loud, hollow-sounding noise, often by pecking on pipes. Both males and females drum, primarily in the spring. Such drumming may continue a few days to a month. This can occur on metal flashing, metal spouts, and television antennae, as well as wood and metal pipes.

When drilling creates rows of holes across the face of cedar siding, woodpeckers are feeding on leaf-cutting bees nesting in tunnels in the plywood. When cedar plywood siding is manufactured, the subsurface ply (crossband) is made from wood sheets which are not butted together. A tunnel is created when the cedar veneer is added. Bees gain entry to these tunnels
either at the edge of the sheet or through openings created when the plywood is grooved. Woodpeckers can hear and feel movement from bees in the tunnels, and peck through the cedar face to feed on them. On shingled siding, they most often drill through the thin end, just below the butt end of the overlapping shingle above. 

If unwelcome birds are roosting or nesting on or around your property, the bird control experts at Trapper Joe's Nuisance Wildlife Control can help. Call us today to learn more about our services or to request an estimate.
