What can I do to keep woodpeckers from drilling holes in the side of my house?
"There are some effective techniques for discouraging woodpeckers," said Lori Naumann of the DNR nongame wildlife program. "Bird scare tape and bird scare balloons can be purchased at stores that sell bird feed. The DNR also has a packet with helpful tips and other information for homeowners with woodpecker problems. To get a copy, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Woodpecker Packet, Box 25, 500 Lafayette Rd., St. Paul, MN 55155."
