We live in a log home that is 10 years old. This is the first year we have been bothered by woodpeckers. We live in a very wooded area and they have many places to go but for some reason are choosing the south side of our house. I am desperate to find out; first how to repair the damage they have done and two how do we keep them from returning? We really need your advice. Thank you very much.


You should apply Energy Seal in the holes to patch them and then apply stain to hide. I have a plastic Owl hanging from my house to help keep the woodpeckers away. It must have glass eyes to be effective has been my experience.
