It's more than a house. It's an adventure.

Lovely wildlife

It seems we have a woodpecker who enjoys our house. He's been pounding away at the fascia board on the east end of the bedroom. I can't tell if there are bugs in the wood because he's opened up a hole, or if he's opened up the holes because there are bugs in there.

Either way, I need to get up there, get the bugs gone, and then seal things up. Possibly with a sheet of aluminum over things to keep him from pecking at it any more. Upon closer inspection, it looks like this board was replaced previously - it doesn't match the fascia boards on the other end of the bedroom! Recurring problem, perhaps?


  • I have never had 'peckers :) try to get into a home before, but we have had several in trees near our house (again in NC). MOST of the time they are looking to make a nest. Instead of aluminum, try hardyboard planks.

  • Here where I live (an apartment outside the city limits) we have this problem almost every year. The only two things that seemed to have worked was to put up some strong fine wire mesh, and the one year we had a hawk hanging around. :D
