Spring is coming soon to Boulder and Woodpeckers too!
Spring is coming soon to Boulder! Bees buzz, birds sing, flowers bloom, and woodpeckers peck (sometimes on places like your house). Unfortunately, woodpecker damage encourages infestation of insects and other wildlife because open wood is an entry point into the structure. Plus, can also rainwater can easily penetrate the structure, which can lead to mold growth and other damaging and hazardous conditions.
Damage Caused by Woodpeckers
Not only wood is at risk with woodpeckers mingling around, but electrical lines and plumbing behind a building’s siding can be jeopardized. In addition to buildings and homes, professional inspectors and homeowners should be on the lookout for severe woodpecker damage to barns and other outbuildings.
Why My House?
Woodpeckers usually hammer on houses for one of three reasons:
To mark their territory. Pecking on a house makes a loud noise that declares the bird’s territory.
To build a nest or roost hole
To feed on insects living in the siding
