Killing a Woodpecker
Although woodpeckers are quite interesting as birds, they can be annoying and cause damage to your house with their pecking. Woodpeckers can peck holes all over the exterior of your house. They can also kill trees through pecking holes in them. Finally, and more simply, they can be annoying and create a lot of noise.
Since the woodpeckers can cause a lot of problems and so many damage, people unfortunately will look into ways to lethally remove them. Although it is illegal to kill a woodpecker, there are methods which have proven to be effective. First of all, you can shoot them. Shooting a woodpecker will surely kill it instantly. The second method is through a snap trap. A specialized trap is a birdhouse containing a mouse snap trap inside of it. Using a snap trap will also kill a woodpecker. The third method is using poison. You can find where the woodpecker is pecking, and apply woodpecker poison to this place. The poison can be something like Cholecalciferol or Strychnine. Applying poison to the place where the woodpecker is pecking will kill the bird. Although these methods are effective, they are illegal. You are not encouraged to follow these lethal methods in getting rid of woodpeckers, especially if you do not know the laws of your state.
If you have tried other methods to trap these birds and get rid of them but have been unsuccessful, remember that you can always call a professional animal control company to take care of your problem for you. A lot of pest control companies will capture and relocate woodpeckers without doing them any harm. This would be a better and humane way to get rid to the birds and the problems that they cause. Another reason that should prevent you from trying to kill a woodpecker is that killing them is illegal. Always remember that there are other ways to take care of your problem. For example, you can find their nest and make it so that the birds will not want to stay in the nest at that particular site anymore. In addition, you may want to consider co-existing with these birds by providing them with a nest box so that they will not peck your trees or house. If it is possible, this is a good idea because woodpeckers will eliminate bugs from your property. However, if they are bothering you, you may want to use removal methods other than killing.
