My North Carolina family sent along photos of the great lengths they are going to at the log cabin to fend off Woody Woodpecker.
An incredible array of specialty items have been created for telling Woody to take a hike.
The traps. The target eyes. The mirrors. Whoa. I sure hope this all works. But first, the foam…
Smile – you’re on Candid Camera.
Of course, you CAN buy all those products, but if you are Mr. EOS, a proud yankee through and through, and have woodpecker problems at the Carriage House, whatya do? You make something! His motto – if it’s free, I’ll take two. 🙂
Mr. EOS’s sister is having swallow problems building nests every year under the front porch and right OVER the back door out to the porch such that anyone who sits on the porch is doomed. For years she decided it was mean to upset the swallows and she let them nest and poop all over the porch. It was awful what they did. Now, she’s come over to the Good Side and wants nothing to do with the swallows – last I heard her say was tell them to go back to Capistrano! She created some homemade anti-swallow devices too (yankee creativity runs in the family!) and so far it’s working!
Hopefully all the hard work and effort going on in North Carolina will prove successful. I may need to borrow all those things when they’re done as I have one of my very own woodpeckers here – for now thankfully, he’s pecking away at a dead tree that I keep for that reason!
Gorgeous sunny day – get out and go and do. I am!
