Helping Homeowners Remove Woodpeckers and Repair Woodpecker Damage Since 1976
Woodpeckers are federally protected, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to prevent the damage they cause.
Since 1976, we’ve been resolving human-wildlife conflict across Chicago and the Chicago suburbs by humanely removing woodpeckers and repairing the damage they leave behind. Our methods to humanely drive away woodpeckers and deliver peace of mind include:
- Near-invisible netting that encourages woodpeckers to leave
- Sonic devices that drive woodpeckers away
- Reflective materials that frighten woodpeckers away
- Woodpecker-proof barriers to prevent woodpeckers from ever coming back
- Woodpecker damage repair
Woodpeckers have their place in nature, not pecking your house.

What Happens When There’s a Woodpecker Pecking My House?
Woodpeckers peck for two reasons; they look for insects and they mark their territory with noise. Just because a woodpecker is pecking, it doesn’t mean bugs are present. They may just be showing off their great pecking skills to potential mates.
Our team inspects the outside of your home to see if bugs are attracting woodpeckers. If they’re not, then we know that woodpeckers are just pecking your home to mark their territory with noise, and we install a system of multiple deterrents to convince them to go elsewhere.
Having woodpeckers peck your house for even a short time can result in permanent damage, including holes and damaged sealants. Our team not only removes the woodpeckers, we repair the damage woodpeckers leave behind.

Why Do I Have Woodpeckers?
Woodpeckers’ diets are composed of insects, especially beetle larvae, and they favor the kind of larvae that infest dead trees. It’s the most beautiful towns and neighborhoods in Illinois that suffer the most woodpecker damage. Homes adjacent to forests and wooded areas are most often attacked by woodpeckers. Glencoe, Riverwoods, Barrington, Wauconda, Northbrook, Oak Brook, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Park Ridge, Winnetka, Highland Park, and Kenilworth are where most woodpecker complaints are reported, but woodpeckers damage homes in nearly every Chicagoland town.
