Will the Songbird Essentials Woodpecker Feeder (SESC1018C) deter woodpeckers from pecking at my shingles?


The Songbird Essentials Woodpecker Feeder (SESC1018C) is a feeder for woodpeckers.   Most of the time woodpeckers are attacking your home because it is finding food under your siding, or insects.  Sometimes applying a liquid insecticide, like our Bifen IT product in the area where the bird is doing damage, will kill any pests behind the siding and therefore if there is no more food, the bird will go elsewhere.  The bird could also be targeting the area for nesting material since you stated it is pulling out insulation.  You can try other non-spraying methods by placing reflective tape in the area or a fake owl or other bird of prey to deter the woodpecker.
