Why should I choose Goldshot Exterminating as my bird control company?

Why should I choose Goldshot Exterminating

as my bird control company?

There’s one thing that I can tell you for sure: all bird control companies are NOT equal. How do I know that? Because we’ve done ten’s of thousands of bird control services since we opened for business in 1991 and for probably 30-40% of them we were not the 1st company hired. In fact, sometimes we’re the 3rd or 4th company which means that customer spent way too much money, time and frustration solving their bird problem. So, what makes us different? Glad you asked! All I can do is tell you how we do business:

  • First off, we have a great reputation. Just go to Google and type Goldshot Exterminating. You’ll see who we are. It’s hard to hide these days.
  • We’re a family owned and operated company and we try to treat our customers like family, too. Caring about the people we work with makes a huge difference for both us and our customers.
  • We’ve been here since February 23, 1991, so we’re not a here-today gone-tomorrow mystery company.
  • As long as you’re in our regular service area, we always give a free quote. It shouldn’t be expensive just to see what your bird control options are.
  • We almost always give a firm price quote. As a consumer, I hate getting estimates. It almost always costs more at the end of the day. If you hire us to handle your bird problem, you will almost always know the exact cost before you hire us.
  • We include cleaning of the targeted areas in the price for every job. You don’t want to live with the poop and we don’t want to work in it so it just makes sense.
  • We only use the very best bird control products so we can deliver a great service every time. One of the biggest problems we see is the use of cheap or incorrect products. It almost never works.
  • With the exception of a few specific situations, we guarantee just about all of our work. And you’ll know exactly what the warranty is or isn’t before you hire us. No surprises.
  • What we do for bird control just plain works. We have a ton of experience and our reputation says it all.

So, if you’re looking for a bird control company that delivers a sensible, effective solution, give us a call. Or, better yet: fill out the $50 off contact form below, and save a few bucks, too.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Rid Of Pigeons On Your Roof | Goldshot Exterminating

Our Top 10 Reasons You Should Get Rid Of Pigeons

Pigeon Poop Removal Phoenix AZIt’s simple: if you have pigeons living or even just hanging around on your roof you absolutely should get rid of them – now, if not sooner. And here’s a few of our favorite reasons why:

  1. Embarrassment. Pigeon poop is embarrassing – it’s just that simple.
  2. They pro-create quickly. What starts out a a couple of pigeons turns into a whole community in no time. They mate for life and have up to eight broods per year. That’s 16 new pigeons from each couple every year. Do the math…..
  3. Your roof: Pigeon poop is acidic and is very hard on your roof. We’ve done hundreds of pigeon control jobs that were referred to us by roofing companies. There’s no sense in spending a small fortune fixing your roof if you don’t get rid of what caused the roof leak in the first place.
  4. Noise: Pigeons make some weird noises, don’t they? And it seems that it’s always extra loud when you get to sleep in…..
  5. Your pool: If pigeons are hanging around your pool and/or the rock features then you are swimming in their toilet. Awesome!
  6. Solar Panels: More specifically,  Pigeons under solar panels. Pigeons love living under the roof mounted panels. And, of course, they poop. A lot. On, under and around the solar panels. The poop damages the panels and makes them less efficient than they are designed to be.
  7. Their nests: They make their nests out of a few twigs and a lot of poop. And they nest right on top of their dead. It’s fairly common to find bugs, larvae, ants, etc in well established pigeon nests.
  8. Your health: Pigeons poop. A lot. And as it accumulates it also dries out and becomes a dust or powder. Once it reaches this dry state it’s extremely ‘movable’. Therefore it is a constant part of the air supply in and around that structure. So if pigeons are on your roof, you are breathing their poop.
  9. Their poop harbors many different diseases and parasites. So, when you breathe their poop, you and your family are at risk of being exposed to those diseases and parasites.
  10. Property values. A neighborhood that has a real pigeon problem is just not as valuable as one that doesn’t. That’s no surprise as nobody in their right mind wants to live in pigeon poop.

So when you get tired of the pigeon poop, fill out this contact form and we’ll give you a free inspection/quote and up to $50 off if you hire us. Cleaning is included with every job and we guarantee all of our work. Our team of AZDA Licensed Pigeon Pros offers pigeon control and removal services throughout the metro Phoenix AZ area including Glendale, the Sun Cities, Gilbert, Scottsdale, etc.

Why don’t pigeon spikes strips keep the pigeons off of my roof? | Goldshot Ext

Pigeons on Roof

Pigeons love hanging around on top of a roof. It’s high up away from people. There’s a great view so they can see the other pigeons in their community and approaching predators. And there’s often good options for shelter, too, such as solar panels, roof-mounted A/C units and nooks where 2 roof lines meet. All provide an awesome place to raise a family.

I can’t tell you how many times a customer will call me out to help them solve their pigeon problem and I find spike up on the roof. The customer is often confused as to why the spike they paid someone else to put on the roof didn’t keep the pigeons away. The answer is actually pretty simple: those bird spike strips don’t move and they can’t cover the entire roof. Therefore, they just don’t work.

Bird or pigeon spikes are considered ‘ledge products’. They are designed to protect a ledge. And if the right size and configuration of spike for a given ledge is installed correctly, they will almost always work. On rare occasions, smaller birds may nest in the spike because they can fit between the tines nicely. But out of the literally thousands of miles of bird spike that I’ve installed over the past 30+ years, I’ve only dealt with that problem a handful of times.

If you have pigeons up on the roof, spike is not the answer. You have a few options available to you:

  • Have the pigeons trapped and relocated at least 50 miles away.
  • Introduce lots of movement and light to the roof such as Daddi Long Legs, flash tape, Scare Eye Diverters and a host of other bird control products
  • Our Whole-Roof-system, which is the only service that we know of that actually guarantees there will be no accumulation of pigeon feces and/or nesting anywhere on the roof for 3 years.
  • Build a giant cage over the entire structure and fill it with hawks or cats.

At the end of the day, don’t use spike on the roof or hire anyone who plans to do so. It just won’t work. Period. I hope this article helps shed a little light on why pigeon spike didn’t get rid of the pigeons on your roof. And I hope you’ll consider Goldshot Exterminating as your pigeon control solution. As always – Happy Hunting!

Pigeon Poop and Feces Cleaning and Removal

Pigeon Poop Removal Phoenix AZCleaning the pigeon poop from the targeted surfaces is included with every pigeon removal job our Certified Pigeon Pros do including pigeon guards for solar panels. Pigeon poop is nasty. It’s bad for your health and it’s bad for your home or business. So, why is it so bad? Glad you asked – here are some very good reasons while pigeon poop is bad for you:

  • First off, there’s just so dang much of it. I mean, NOTHING poops like a pigeon. It accumulates quickly because they literally poop constantly – all day long!
  • Second, it looks terrible on your home or – most often – right on the front porch. It’s embarrassing.
  • Add to that the fact that it clogs up any and all roof drainage systems. We have done a ton of work through the years that was referred by a roofing company. It makes no sense to spend a small fortune fixing a roof leak if you don’t fix the cause of the roof leak. And if you have pigeons on your roof, a having roof leak is probably just a matter of time.
  • Pigeon feces is extremely acidic and will eventually damage just about any surface. That includes the roof, solar panels, ledges, concrete, tiling, bricks, cars and anything else that pigeons poop on.
  • Pigeons are attracted back to the scent of their mothers feces – for life. Believe it or not, POOP is how pigeons mark their turf and how they make and find home.

So….maybe now you can see why we clean up the mess with every job we do. Besides, we don’t want to work in it any more than you wanna live in it. It just makes sense to clean up the pigeon poop before we begin the actual work. It’s included in just about every quote we do.

Can birds control when they poop?

Yes – for the most part – when they want to. Birds use a lot of energy – especially when flying. So lightening the pay load is a must. Hence the frequent pooping! Pigeons, of course, are the worst. The problem is they actually want a lot of poop where ever they hang out and where they live. So…they poop…a lot!

He is dependable, polite, honest, kind, trustworthy and the list goes on. I would let these guys in my home even while I was out of town. If you’re looking for a company you can trust call Goldshot.

Information About Commercial Bird Control & Removal

Commercial bird control & removal services can be extremely expensive here in the Phoenix AZ area. Pigeon feces also creates an unhealthy working environment which may lead to health issues for employees – a problem no business owner or manager needs. Birds – especially pigeons – cause millions of dollars worth of structural damages each year. In a commercial situation, the subsequent damages to product and/or equipment can be devastating. And then there’s the loss of production associated with a commercial pigeon problem. Paying employees to clean up pigeon feces every single day is just the tip of the iceberg. Down time because of damaged structures and/or equipment, repackaging, cleaning or disposing of damaged product, employee illness…the list goes on and on.

Fortunately just about all pigeon problems can be solved or are avoidable all together. Often, especially when it comes to commercial pigeon control and removal, a combination of products and services is needed to contain and eliminate the bird problem. High quality commercial grade pigeon netting, spike, electric abatement systems, repellents and/or deterrents, trapping and baiting are just a few examples of potential solutions available to the professional bird management company.

PIGEON PEST CONTROL

Most pest companies that say they do pigeon pest control are really just novices. They are trying to take care of a pigeon problem for their customer and we appreciate that. Maybe they are uncomfortable having another pest control company involved with their customer. The sad part is that most of the time they end up just frustrating the customer because they don’t know what they’re doing. They damage solar panels and roofing without getting the results the customer needs. We know because we handle those calls every day.

If you are a pest control professional you can refer your customer to Goldshot worry free. As long as we know they were referred by another pest technician or company we never compete for any pest related services that you offer.

Why are pigeons on my roof or balcony? | Goldshot Exterminating

Why are pigeons on my roof or balcony?

For the very best Pigeon Control Services available in the Phoenix area including Surprise, Sun City West, Glendale, Peoria and everywhere nearby, Call Goldshot Exterminating.Folks always ask why the pigeons are on their roof or why pigeons are on their balcony. The answer is that every situation is different so the reason pigeons settled on any individual structure can vary. That said, pigeons are a lot like every other critter in the world: they’re looking for food, water and shelter. So those will be the basic reasons behind why a pigeon infestation is where it is. The nooks & hidden areas up on the roof of many homes and buildings offer great sheltered spaces for pigeons to nest in.  Pigeons have a pretty broad diet and find all of the food and water they need in our neighborhoods. Dog food, trash, grass seed and a host of other things offer all of the food they need. And the lush landscapes that we have provide all of the water they would ever need. You also have to take into account things like a lack of predators and shade.

Another thing to remember is that pigeons don’t give up their home easily. So, even if the  food or water source that originally drew them to a specific location is gone, the pigeons may still be there. An example would be if you were to seed your yard for a winter lawn. You can bet that if the pigeons find the seed they’ll feast on it. And sit on your roof while they’re there. And poop. The problem is that when the seed it gone, there’s a good chance the pigeons won’t be. If they find the shelter they need while there, they may just stay. As you can see, it’s not always easy to figure out why a customer has a pigeon infestation on their home or business. Pigeons roost near their nest, often where they have a clear view of it. They like the high points in a neighborhood as it offers the advantage of seeing any predators from afar.

Pigeon Community

Pigeons have a strong sense of community and will nest and roost close to each other. They basically have their own neighborhood on the roof tops of the homes in your neighborhood. Unfortunately it’s not always possible to remove conditions that are conducive to pigeon activity. The other pigeons and many of the food and water sources may be located on nearby properties where you have zero control. That leaves professional pigeon control as the best solution in most cases. The sooner you get the pigeons off of your roof, the less expensive it will generally be, both in damages and for the proofing.

Pigeons on Roof Phoenix AZPrevention is really the key when it comes to a pigeon problem. They are stubborn so it requires an experienced pigeon proofing company and the use of quality pigeon control products. Making sure there are fewer food and water sources available to pigeons can help prevent them from ever getting started. Of course, you can’t control what’s happening around your property. So if you live next to a farm where livestock is being fed and watered every day, it’s very possible that pigeons will be hanging around. And neighbors may be feeding the birds and drawing pigeons as well.

If you start to see them hanging around, I advise going ahead and have the nesting sites such as nooks under the eaves or space under roof mounted a/c units netted to prevent nesting. Or if you have pigeons under your solar panels, have that screened to exclude them from getting under there. Some times they may like roosting on ledges that overlook nesting sites on neighboring structures, too. Taking care of these problem areas early almost always saves the customer a bunch of money, not to mention the aggravation. Pigeon poop stains stucco, the roof and any porous surface it lands on. And it creates an unhealthy environment, too. They rarely leave on their own so do yourself a favor and prevent the problem from ever getting out of hand. I promise that if you don’t there’s a good chance you’ll wish you had.

Does pigeon spike work to control birds? | Goldshot Exterminating

Does pigeon spike work to control birds?

Does pigeon spike work? Some times. Pigeon spike is made to solve a specific problem, but is often mis-used.

Does pigeon spike work? Some times. Pigeon spike is made to solve a specific problem, but is often mis-used.

I love to BBQ and my brisket is really very good. I have my own rub recipe and always smoke it fat side up so the fat can melt down through the meat to flavor and tenderize it. I smoke it for 12 hours in an off-set charcoal smoker and braise it for 4 hours. It comes out with a beautiful crust and just the right amount of smoke flavor. It literally melts in your mouth. And I make my own sauce, which folks seem to enjoy, too. I’ve done brisket for thousands of people and it’s always a crowd favorite, but if I turn the heat up too much or leave it in too long it drys out and takes on a burnt flavor. And it don’t go over real well as a desert, either. But when I pick the right piece of meat, cook it perfectly and serve it on a Friday night with my jalapeno-cheese potatoes, honey-butter cornbread and bacon-banana pudding for desert I’m a pretty popular guy.

In an odd way, pigeon proofing is kinda like BBQ. You gotta pick the right product for the specific situation and install it correctly or it just don’t work. Pigeon spike is one of the more commonly used products out there. Unfortunately, it’s also very common to see it fail to protect the targeted surface or area. Why? Well, usually because it is either the wrong product for that situation or has just been installed incorrectly. Often it’s both!

Pigeon spike comes in several different sizes and configurations and is made from several different materials or combination of materials. But all of them have one thing in common: they are all considered to be a ‘ledge product’, meaning they are intended to protect ledges from roosting pigeons. The spike chosen for any specific job is dependent on a few variables:

  • How wide is the ledge?
  • What is the surface made of (stucco, metal, wood, etc.)?
  • Will it be exposed to sunlight after installation?
  • Is the visibility of the finished product important?
  • Is this installation being made to solve a problem with pigeons or some other species of bird?
  • How committed are the pigeons (how long have they been there, how many are there)?
  • Will the spike be installed in a place where people can touch it?

The pigeon spike should be installed so that it is no more than 1/2″ from the wall and should extend out slightly past the outer edge of the ledge, so choosing the right width is critical. How committed are the pigeons to the structure? Typically, the longer they are there, the more stubborn they will be and the harder it will be to get rid of them. If they’ve been there awhile, choose a spike that has a configuration that is more dense as far as the placement and number of tines goes. I usually suggest using a stainless steel spike as opposed to a plastic version. It will cost a bit more but will look better, takes on paint well and will last much longer. If the installation surface is wood use screws, otherwise you will usually be better off to use a very good silicone adhesive. I don’t recommend Liquid Nails, especially if it will be exposed to direct sunlight. Always clean the surface thoroughly first and if it’s stucco, you’ll want to knock the bigger chunks off for a smoother installation surface and better adhesion. Spike is made to help control pigeons and will usually (not always) work for doves. If the birds are smaller than doves, pigeon spike is the wrong product for sure as smaller birds will often nest right in between the tines.

Pigeon spike is not a good product for use on the actual roof as it looks terrible and the pigeons can just stand right next to it. Nor is it a good choice if you have pigeons nesting under your solar panels. I’m also not crazy about using it to protect chimneys. It doesn’t look too good on a chimney and if you use the chimney the heat and smoke can effect both the spike and any adhesives you use for installations. One of the most common mistakes I see is when folks install spike into the nooks under the eaves trying to prevent nesting. Usually the pigeons work their way in behind the spike and and their poop, feathers and nesting materials just get caught up in the tines making the problem even worse. It’s just the wrong product for those applications.

One more thing: I do not recommend installing pigeon spike in areas where people are able to touch or otherwise interact with it. At some point they will probably damage it and render it ineffective, but that’s not my biggest concern. Spike can definitely cause injury and who ever installs it could be held responsible. So just don’t do it.

Like most things in life, experience can make a huge difference. An experienced installer will pick up lots of little tricks along the way that can help make the use of pigeon spike more effective and less visible. If they’re really good, they will also know when pigeon spike is not the best solution and can make solid recommendations for replacement products and/or services. I have personally installed hundreds of miles of spike in my 30 years in the industry and can tell you for sure that there are many ways to skin this particular cat (or pigeon:). So it’s usually a good idea to call a few professionals and see what they have to say.

Here’s a little BBQ trick for you: you can get a little bit of smoke flavor on your food even if you don’t have an actual smoker or the 18 hours to invest. Get yourself some wood chips (I like either mesquite or a combination of pecan and apple) and soak them in water for an hour. When you’re ready to grill, make a pouch out of aluminum foil and place a handful of the wet wood chips into it. Poke a few holes in the top of the foil, place the pouch on the grill with your food and close the lid. Works real well on chicken:)

I hope you find this article helpful and I hope you’ll consider Goldshot Exterminating as your pigeon spike installation specialists. As always: Happy Hunting!

Do Woodpecker Deterrents Work? | Goldshot Exterminating

Do Woodpecker Deterrents Work?

So you finally make it to the weekend and you get to sleep in past the usual 5 AM alarm. But just as the sun peaks over the Phoenix Arizona horizon you’re awakened by the sounds of nature: a woodpecker drumming on your house! I know you want to, but don’t shoot him – it’s illegal. All he’s doing is looking for a meal or trying to impress the lady woodpeckers, but you’re the one left with less sleep and woodpecker holes in your house.

 

Woodpecker Damage Control

Woodpecker Damage

Why Do I Have Woodpecker Damage?

Woodpeckers are found throughout Arizona including in cities such as Phoenix, Surprise, Sun City West, Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale, etc. The Northern Flicker is the most common species of woodpecker in Arizona. They can cause a lot of damage to trees, fence posts and buildings. For woodpeckers, the busy season is from March through June when they are making nests, attracting mates and claiming their territory. They eat a lot of damaging insects such as termites and carpenter bees and the woodpecker damage to your home could be an early warning signal of such problems. Your home may provide a meal, a nesting location or nesting material (they love the foam behind your stucco), or just the right stage to perform for the lady woodpeckers and let them know how awesome he is!

 

How Do I Get Rid Of Woodpeckers?

Woodpeckers are federally protected so you can’t hurt them. The best thing to do is to install woodpecker deterrents in/on the problem areas. You always want to fill the holes that they made first. If it’s a stucco surface, which is very common in the Phoenix area, the use of a paint-able caulk works well because it’s easy to texture to match the stucco. A little bit of matching paint and viola! The woodpecker damage is gone.

Next you want to introduce some movement to the area to persuade your woodpecker friend to move on to your neighbors house. Flash tape is our preferred product because it’s inexpensive, easy to use and works most of the time – if it’s installed correctly. There are several other scare products available such as motion activated spiders and big eyed balloons which can also be effective. One thing that I have learned (the hard way) in the almost 30 years I’ve been doing this type of work is that you don’t want to nickle and dime the woodpeckers. What I mean is that every time you install woodpecker deterrents incorrectly the woodpeckers become more stubborn and difficult to relocate. The proper placement of your chosen woodpecker deterrent products is critical and if you’re not positive about how to do it right the first time, call a professional.

 

How To Choose A Professional Woodpecker Deterrent Company

There aren’t a ton of companies that offer this service as a regular part of their business. If it’s not something that they do regularly and they haven’t been doing it for years, I recommend moving on to a company that has. Again – every time woodpecker deterrents are installed incorrectly the problem gets tougher to solve.

Once you find a company or companies that have a great track record with woodpecker deterrent work, type the name of the company into a Google search bar. These days it’s hard to hide. You should get a pretty accurate idea of who they are with the search results. The woodpecker control company that you choose should be licensed and insured according to state mandates. And you should be able to read online reviews that confirms that they do great work. Woodpecker damage and deterrent services are usually not as expensive as some other pest bird control work. Generally you should be looking at around $10-15/linear foot of eave including the repairs and the deterrents. The customer should provide the matching paint for the repairs. Difficult access or major repairs could cause that cost to go up.

I hope you find this article helpful and I hope you’ll consider Goldshot Exterminating’s AZDA Licensed Bird Pros as your woodpecker deterrent solution. As always: Happy Hunting!

Guaranteed Pigeon Proofing

Goldshot Exterminating Knows How To Get Rid Of Pigeons - Thousands of happy Pigeon Control Customers Since 1991, Check out our A+ Rating with the BBB

Goldshot Exterminating Knows How To Get Rid Of Pigeons – Thousands of happy Pigeon Control Customers Since 1991!

Are Pigeons Driving You Crazy? Descendants of the European Rock Dove (Columba Livia), the pigeons that we see on our homes and other buildings here in the Phoenix AZ area are a feral population, meaning they live wild but are descended from domesticated individuals. Their ancestors are the very birds that humans have trained to be homing pigeons and messenger pigeons for centuries. That training explains why pigeons are so stubborn and extremely committed to their home and why professional pigeon proofing is so important.

They have an average life span of 3 – 5 years in the wild. They are typically 11 – 13 inches long and have a wingspan of 20 – 24 inches. Their coloration is variable and includes gray, white, and brownish-red or quite often a mixture of these colors. The feathers on the neck tend to be slightly iridescent and may shine pink and/or green in the sunlight. Their eyes tend to be orange.

Feral pigeons are widespread and common in both our cities and in urban areas. Their diets have expanded from mostly just seeds to include offerings found in almost any setting, such as bread, vegetables, meat and many other items discarded by humans. Man’s trash is truly a pigeon’s treasure.

Feral pigeons have a great sense of community and tend to be found in sometimes quite large flocks. They nest close to each other in protected spaces such as under roof mounted solar panels. They also roost in groups and often feed together. If a pigeon or group of pigeons is disturbed, they will take off with a noisy flapping or clapping sound, which alerts the rest of the group that there may be danger present. If alone, an individual pigeon will try to avoid danger by keeping very still and trying to go unnoticed.

Nothing poops like a pigeon! They defecate many times per day – I have read every 15 minutes, though I haven’t actually timed them myself. The accumulation of pigeon feces causes millions of dollars in structural damages every year and can have a real effect on property values. As the feces dries and becomes air-born it also presents possible health hazards to humans. They nest on their dead so often the actual nest can be found infested with maggots and/or various insects. pigeon feces is known to harbor dozens of various diseases and parasites.

The good news is that you do not have to live with a Pigeon Problem.

As the pigeon populations have grown and human/pigeon interaction has increased, pigeon proofing has expanded greatly as an industry. There are many products available to the professional installer that allow protection from a pigeon Infestation for any given problem area on any structure. quality pigeon proofing can be expensive, but if you pick the right company it’s worth every cent. When interviewing pigeon proofing companies, there are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Are they licensed and insured? Remember – to fix a pigeon problem one must get to the places pigeons live, which generally means climbing ladders and moving around/working on your roof. If something goes wrong you want to make sure that you’re covered.

2. Do they have references right here in the Phoenix area, or in your town if you live outside of the Phoenix area? It’s best if they can provide references from both very recent work, which shows that they are currently providing quality work, and from work that was completed a few years ago, which will show the long term quality of their work. Nobody wants to pay for pigeon proofing and then have to pay for it again in a year.

3. You need to see what the work will look like BEFORE hiring them. Pictures may do, but driving by a few homes will really tell the story. Once the work is completed you have to live with what it looks like every single day so be sure it looks great and blends in with the overall aesthetics of your home or business.

4. Does the person you’re speaking with have a well thought out plan and are they confident in it? If you feel like they’re making it up as they go or if their answers to your questions seem vague and not to point – call someone else.

5. Is the work guaranteed? Any professional pigeon proofing installations should be guaranteed to prevent access to the targeted areas/surfaces for a minimum of 1 year but preferably 3 years. Beware that most warranties for pigeon proofing work will only include the direct and specific areas/surfaces that were targeted and that is correct. At Goldshot Exterminating we do have a whole roof pigeon abatement system available which warranties the entire roof against an accumulation of pigeon feces and/or nesting, but I don’t know of any other company that offers that. I would ask any company you interview if that is available.

6. Before contacting a pigeon proofing company, type the name of the company into a regular Google search and check them out thoroughly. You may be surprised what you find!

I hope this article has been helpful and I hope you’ll consider Goldshot Exterminating as your pigeon proofing solution. Happy hunting!

“Why do I have Woodpeckers and Woodpecker Damage on my house?”

That’s the #1 question folks ask when they’re dealing with a woodpecker problem. There are a few different reasons why you may have woodpecker damage or woodpecker holes on your house:

1. They may be looking for something to eat. Woodpeckers eat lots of different insects with termites being one of their preferred meals. They are very good at finding these critters in walls, fence posts, telephone poles and trees. They often know that these critters are there before the home owner does.

2. They may be working on a nest. Though it’s possible to find a woodpecker nest inside of the hole that they made in your wall, it’s more common for them to extract the foam from behind the stucco to line a nest that’s located in a cactus or tree.

3. To sharpen their beak. Sometimes it’s as simple as just good old-fashioned maintenance.

4. Love! The male woodpecker needs to let all of the lady woodpeckers in the neighborhood know how awesome he is. One way to do that is to make a lot of noise. If you have a woodpecker pecking (called drumming) on something metal – like the spark arrestor on the top of your chimney – that’s probably what’s going on.

Of course, then they ask how to get rid of woodpeckers. Woodpeckers can be an absolute nuisance, but more importantly they can be very expensive. The holes they make in your exterior walls can contribute to other problems. They make a great place for bees and other pests to set up shop. They also allow moisture to enter the wall void which can lead to a variety of other structural issues.

Woodpeckers are federally protected, which limits your woodpecker control and/or removal options. Luckily our Certified Pest Pros have safe, humane and legal solutions for your nuisance woodpecker problem. We seal the holes up to keep moisture and other critters out and install woodpecker deterrents to gently and humanely persuade them to relocate.

So the next time you hear the Woodpecker song of love on your roof, don’t throw rocks at them (come on – you know you want to…). Call Goldshot Exterminating for a free quote and an effective solution for your woodpecker problem. You can take 20% off if you opt for our GAP Plan, too!

Interesting Woodpecker Fact:

Woodpeckers have a specially developed long tongue which can be extended a considerable distance and is used most effectively to extract larvae, termites and ants from their burrows in wood or under bark.
