We live in a California Modern / two story. The house is constructed of Cedar and Native sand stone. The previous owner did not like the look of cedar or something and had the house painted a dark green color. Anyway the problem I am encountering is that the siding or the color or both are attracting Woodpeckers to my house. I have two entries right now and I am going to repair them but also would like to know if anyone has any knowledge of how to avoid their return. Do I repaint a different color? replace the siding with something less attractive like vinyl??. I hope someone will have the answer I need. The local game athories and the pest controll people will not even look at the probelm because the Woodpeckers are Protected!! Thanks in advance.

Chris,
I have heard of people using wooden owls on window sills or any place where they can be reasonably placed. I have heard that this is pretty effective. I think you just have to remember to move the owls around once a week or so.Good luck!
