    Woodpecker problems ;)

    12 days and boy do I need it! I just found a HOLE on fascia board near my roof line- woodpeckers have been going nuts! I just found it today and found the woodpecker a few minutes ago. My handyman is coming later to fix the problem but I now need to find a way to keep woodpeckers away from my house!

    My neighbor hung the foil strips last year, looks pretty tacky but I guess it worked. It was kind of annoying when it would blow in the wind I would hear it but i am such a light sleeper it is crazy! Good luck with the woodpeckers and great link Walt provided I will be keeping this for reference myself.

    Happy countdown to you and everyone else getting close. Have a wonderful trip!

    Try stuffing the hole with steel wool... we had a problem with squirrels and did this too. Also spray the area with coyote urine.. (yes can get it in lowe's)

    seriously one can buy coyote urine @ lowes?

    yrs ago when i was a good rider, i used to go on "pretend " fox hunts. using fox urine, not real foxes.
    but there were real dogs and real horses. hahahaha
