Woodpecker Damage Control Repair
Where did the woodpecker come from? The most common woodpecker in Florida is by far the red-bellied woodpecker. They can be found in just about any habitat type and have adapted well to urban environments. The two less numerous woodpeckers are the red-headed and red-cockaded woodpeckers.
Can I legally remove them? Woodpeckers are protected under federal and state laws (keep this in mind if you hear one knocking in the middle of the night), they can also cause damage to your styrafoam molding, wood siding, or wooden window frames.
