[CT Birds] woodpecker problem

​Hi Susan,
We had similar issues with our woodpeckers, where one side of my house
looked like Swiss cheese.
We also filled with wood putty for awhile.
What we did find helpful was attaching long silver streamers (like aluminum
ones) (I think we got at Party City) and a few
pie tins, which would flap around in the breeze and which definitely
discouraged the woodpeckers.
After a few years we replaced those wood boards and continued to put the
streamers and pie tins up.
Someone had mentioned to me that possibly we had bugs in the siding, but we
had it checked out and there were none.
Good luck,
Bev Propen, Orange
