Have the same problem here in Woodbury. Pretty common actually. Reflective tape and big balloon with eyes works for awhile (available through Amazon), but they get used to it. I even placed a mounted screech owl in the window, but they got used to that too.  Utilities have to wrap poles with wire in some places. They used to make a "hot foot" potion but I think it's been outlawed. Shooting, of course, would be illegal.  I might try some kind of fish netting. I suspect the drumming resonance of loose clapboard is at fault, unless there are ants in your wall.   Good luck.
