Question: 1386-4216
We have a woodpecker tapping away on our house. What can we do to get rid off it? Don, Barrington, RI

Mort's Answer:
You can use behavior modification by placing suet away from the house. A metal strip over the hole may be best to discourage the noisy bird. There are repellent sprays that will irritate their eyes but harm them. Just spray the hole and it should move to greener pastures. The suet bait and switch with spray in the hole should be just the trick.
