Never a dull moment at this house!
For the past few months we've had a woodpecker drilling on our attic shutter. Well, he finally succeeded and he had to be evacuated before he invited his friends for a sleepover!
This is at the very peak of our house, way taller than we felt we could repair it ourselves.
We called the pest control people and they said we had to call the Nuisance Nabbers - isn't that a great name!!
They came and debated how they were going to get to him too, as this is really, really high! They had to build three levels of scaffolding to reach the shutter. It was quite nerve wracking to watch because they had nothing to hang on to against the flat house!
He had to work really hard to get the shutter off. It had been repainted twice and was sealed quite well.
That's a pretty good size hole he made for himself - the little bugger! The guys repaired it and reinforced it with metal and put in a bird screen.
I highly recommend Calvin who owns the Nuisance Nabbers!
Oh and guess what?
The woodpecker was back that afternoon! It's been a couple of weeks now and he still comes at least twice a day. He's pounding harder than he ever did to get back in. From inside the house it sounds like he's coming through the wall! He's determined to get through that metal and the screen. Any bets on whether he will get the job done again??
The joys of living in the wild, wild west! *Ü*
