A woodpecker has decided it likes my house in CVille. Does anyone have recommendations for companies/individuals in the area skilled at removing these annoying birds?

I dont think the woodpecker would be there were it not for an underlying problem. You must have something that he likes to eat, like insect larvae. Maybe carpenter bees, something like that.

I'd call an exterminator first. Also keep in mind that a lot of these critters (i.e. the woodpeckers) have more status under the law than you do. So dont go killin' them without permission.

We found that re-staining our house kept them away for several years.
