Woodpecker Damage To Your Trees
Have you ever seen a series of straight lines bored into the side of a tree? If you have, this is the result of a Woodpecker. In severe cases and given enough time, Woodpeckers will drill so many rows of holes together, bark will begin to fall off the tree.
The holes “drilled” in and the lack of bark is a major problem. The issue with this is that it will surely attract other pests which will contribute disease and growth of fungi. This in turn will kill the tree.
In order to provide management of Woodpeckers, we typically use material such as burlap and sticky repellents designed to send a clear message to keep them off your trees!
