Woodpecker Netting is a surefire way to repel woodpeckers! This net will completely cut off the bird’s access to the area they’re trying to peck.
Use this net only when other woodpecker deterrents have failed.
- Pros – Provides a physical barrier, won’t harm woodpeckers, and protects a large area.
- Cons – Installation can take some time and it isn’t the prettiest solution, especially when used in the front of your house.
- Guarantee – Can’t find anything indicating there is a warranty outside of the normal Amazon Prime 30-Day warranty.
Another barrier method similar to the woodpecker spikes is woodpecker netting. I find this especially useful for gardens where netting can be wrapped around stakes to prevent the birds from attacking your plants.
These woodpecker nets are especially effective at protecting fruit trees.
However, bird netting can also be very effective to protect your house if you can manage to get the netting about a foot away from the affected area. This creates a barrier that the bird is unable to penetrate. If possible, install hooks from soffits and then run stretches of this netting down toward the ground. Link the lengths of netting together using zip ties or twist ties.
Although this is a very effective method, I would only recommend it if all efforts to use visual or electronic woodpecker repellents has failed. This is definitely not the easiest way to get rid of woodpeckers.
If however you must resort to woodpecker netting, you can guarantee that it will repel woodpeckers!
