Building Damage Caused by Northern Flicker Woodpecker in Calgary

The northern flicker woodpecker has been creating havoc with buildings in Calgary and across Alberta.

These woodpeckers prefer buildings with stucco over styrofoam. These birds use the sound they create by drumming at buildings for many purposes.

They will set up a nest inside these holes they have made to have their young.

Meanwhile they cost thousands of dollars of damage to buildings with the holes they leave behind.

This species of woodpecker is a protective species under the Migratory Bird Convention Act.

They will migrate south for the winter and return again in the spring.

JAPCO Pest Control has a solution to the damage caused by woodpeckers

Fall and Winter are the best time to repair the damage while the nest is empty.
