Keeping woodpeckers away from telephone & utility poles should be approached like any other bird control campaign, where timing is critical as woodpeckers are more apt to leave a briefly occupied site rather than an established roost.  Also keep in mind that all woodpecker scare products work best when used in combination with each other as they increase the bird’s fear and flight response to the perceived predator threat.

Stop Woodpeckers from Damaging Utility Poles with Bird Scare Devices

Monday, August 3, 2015 8:20:18 AM America/Los_Angeles

Federally protected Woodpeckers have been thorns in the utility industries back for years due to the inordinate amount of damage they cause to utility poles. This damage is not only unsightly but it creates a safety hazard for the linesmen who have to climb these weakened structures. Woodpeckers like to peck into utility poles for a variety of reasons.  A common theory is that communication poles offer a great vantage point to view the surrounding areas for available food or potential predators. Woodpeckers use utility poles for drumming - a signal to attract a mate or to establish territory. However, the primary cause of damage is to create a nesting or food storage cavity. The resulting damage is often so severe that utility workers cannot make needed repairs. Moreover, left unchecked the pole will either fall down or be so deteriorated that it would be impossible to climb.Poles damaged by woodpeckers are also responsible for power failures, creating electrical power outages. All are major problems for the utility companies which results in millions of dollars in damage and ongoing safety risks.
