House Sparrows love to nest in, on, or near buildings. House sparrow nests clog or block drains, gutters and downspouts. Their nest (built by both parents) is made of material such as grass, weeds, twigs, trash, often lined with feathers. The noise can be annoying, especially because they start singing at the very first light. Their feces contain uric acid which is corrosive.

House sparrow droppings eat away at paint on cars and construction materials. Find out what to do about house sparrows, here.

Please note that Cottom’s Wildlife Removal company is NOT classified as a “woodpecker exterminator“. There are penalties for killing woodpeckers they have special federal protection. All woodpeckers are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. (MBTA).  This law states: “No person may take (kill), possess, import, export, transport, sell, purchase, barter, or offer for sale, any migratory bird, or the parts, nests, or eggs of such bird except as may be permitted under the terms of a valid permit…”

When warranted, woodpeckers can be killed, but only under a depredation permit issued by the Law Enforcement Division of the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Authorization by the relevant state wildlife agency also may be required before lethal control methods are initiated. Sound justification must be present for the issuance of depredation permits. Hazing woodpeckers does not require a permit. Download the Depredation Permit, here.

Application for a depredation permit for some species of woodpeckers may be an option, but should be considered as a last resort. Proper exclusion, harassment, and monitoring will be necessary to demonstrate that need. Permits will be issued only if non-lethal methods have previously been tried and failed. The applicant must show strong justification (i.e. where significant structural damage has resulted in an economic hardship).

You many need a pest exterminator to get rid of an underlying insect problem because woodpeckers like to peck on houses to feed on insects. Woodpeckers eat carpenter bees, termites, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants, leafcutter bees and grass bagworms. Woodpeckers also hammer on homes in Ohio to create a nesting cavity, to store food or to attract a mate.

Why Are Woodpeckers Drumming On My Property?  [From The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service]

Woodpeckers, sapsuckers, and flickers drum and drill on a variety of surfaces. Siding (aluminum or wood), trim boards, and wood boards on any kind of structure can be appealing to woodpeckers. The resulting damage can appear as simple dents (usually a line) or as large as 2-inch diameter holes. Woodpeckers drum and drill in their search for food, territorial and social displays, and to nest in the cavities created. Sapsuckers drill small holes for sap, while many other woodpeckers drill for woodboring insects such as carpenter bees, leafcutter bees, grass bagworms, etc. Drumming for territory or social reasons will most likely occur in the early spring at the start of the breeding season. Drilling for nest cavities usually occurs in the early spring, although some drilling occurs in the fall.

How Do I Keep Woodpeckers From Damaging My Property? [From The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service]

The best way to stop woodpecker damage to personal property is to begin damage control as soon as you begin hearing drumming and continuing until well after the woodpecker leaves the area. Holes the bird has made should be filled and painted immediately. If a nest is already active, we recommend that control measures be postponed until the young leave the nest permanently, which is usually around midsummer, but can vary depending on the species. Physical exclusion is probably the most effective control method. Installing bird-netting from the outer eaves down the side of the building is typically effective at excluding most woodpeckers.

Other methods include:

• Frightening devices (models of owls and hawks, spinners, windsocks, etc.) can be used, although these devices have inconsistent success.
• Tactile deterrents are sometimes used with marginal success. However, some products can get on feathers and impair the bird’s ability to fly and stay warm.
• Sound deterrents coupled with motion detection are another option. Typically this would involve playing the recording of a woodpecker distress call followed by a raptor call.
• Tying a burlap bag or other heavy fabric around a tree (particularly ornamental trees) can be effective at preventing sapsucker damage.

How To Repel And Deter Woodpeckers To Frighten Them Away

If you want to try to repel woodpeckers with smells and scents, peppermint oil may work. Other DIY ways to get rid of woodpeckers include woodpecker deterrent kits, spraying your house with woodpecker repellents and visual deterrents such as pinwheels, balloons, reflective tape and windsocks.

Because woodpecker damage in Ohio is considered a maintenance issue that is the responsibility of the homeowner, woodpecker damage is probably NOT covered by your home insurance (homeowner’s insurance). Find out more about preventing woodpeckers from damaging your home, here.

Woodpeckers in Ohio are small to medium-sized birds that prey on insect species that dead trees attract and woodpeckers rely on the softening branches and trunks to excavate their nests.
