Bird, Tree, Nature, Wildlife, WoodYou need to realize that woodpeckers aren’t damaging your home or interrupting your sleeping since they have a personal vendetta against you personally. There’s a cause for this attack on your senses, particularly early in the morning. In reality, there might be several factors. When you understand them, you’ll be more able to employ the suitable solution.

Why Are Woodpeckers Seeking to Destroy My Home & My Sanity?

1. To Bring a Mate

2. To Set a Territory

3. To Earn a Cavity to get a Nest

4. To Find Food

Since woodpeckers don’t have a song to sing which can capture the heart of a potential partner, they do everything comes naturally-they become hammerheads! Pecking away at 20 times a second it is simple to see how they can give themselves a significant migraine, or even a concussion, with no all-natural protection.

Their natural goals are trees, naturally, but any tall thing is going to do. It does not even have to be timber, as my metal chimney pipe may attest. Utility poles are just another great drumming surface. This banging noise will populate and be noticed for long distances. Whether there are possible mates round, this kind of communicating isn’t any neglect.

Woodpeckers do have forecasts which they use together with the drumming on surfaces. Those calls include, amongst others, ‘ ‘pit-pit’ or ‘chick-chick’, occasionally high- pitched, determined by the conditions. It’s like he is saying “gang manner, here I come”! This strategy is quite successful as most of the other birds scatter ahead of it.

One other very important reason for woodpeckers to knock on surfaces would be to establish their land.

Each tree creates a distinct sound which will make a type of musical graph.

Woodpeckers are organic cavity nesters. The timber onto your residence is no different for this bird compared to a tree could be, therefore it’s a possible nesting spot. Considering all the urban growth and reduction of natural habitat, woodpeckers choose what they can get so as to survive. Normally a tree that is dead ‘snag’ would function that this bird’s purpose quite nicely. But most individuals do not want to have unsightly, and possibly dangerous, dead trees throughout their own property. You can see the difficulties arise, as always, when people and animals are forced in precisely the exact same habitat.

Food resources such as bugs and their larvae reside in timber, even occasionally on your timber siding. When a woodpecker continues to peck at precisely the exact same place, particularly when it is not springtime, then you could get an infestation. These birds can feel the vibrations bugs as well as their infants put up in the timber. Equipped with barbed tongues around 4″ long, woodpeckers can reach into holes under bark and readily move onto their foods. Continual banging precisely the exact same area should possess you consulting the yellow pages to get a professional exterminator. In least the exterminator may ascertain if carpenter bees or even several other insects are really present on your timber.

Alright, so now we understand why those drummers do what they do, what do we do to prevent them?

These are my recommendations for organic and non-toxic remedies for your woodpecker issue:

1. These repellents flavor and smell bad into a woodpecker.

2. Again based on the job of the harm and also how easily accessible it’s for you, you will find netting products which may be draped throughout the region in question.

3. Think about installing a woodpecker nesting box to offer a pit in which they may nest. Consult with a bird identification manual to ascertain what size nesting box would be suitable. This is: hairyenormous in comparison to downy, that can be yummy. Each has distinct nest box requirements.

4. This fails for me personally. They currently have no-melt suet, which will be safe to be used in warmer weather. Magically my own woodpecker woes vanish when I provide them with suet. A jelly cleaner or mealworm feeder never hurts. Woodpeckers have a sweet tooth and may taste sweetness. They frequently see my oriole nectar feeder along with the hummer feeder which has a larger perching area.

5. Shiny objects which move with the end unpredictably can help dissuade their efforts and encourage them to proceed. Start looking for them on the internet or in the regional hardware shop.
Insecticide usage is among the biggest risks to our woodpecker populations since they remove their normal food resources. Another problem is reduction of trees to nest and forage for food. In my woods I’ve many poplar trees. The guys arrive early in the spring and start ‘calling’ to get a mate. It’s stated that Woody Woodpecker of animation fame was modeled after a pileated woodpecker. I simply believe that they are a really trendy looking bird!

Paul made a consultation with me and came with an issue: “My wife keeps telling me I’ve ADHD since I’m always misplacing things, denying what she states, and operating late – to get the job done. However, I have not ever been gruesome, therefore can she be correct?”
A week after, I met Jennifer upset with that which her doctor had advised her. I’m quite low energy, and my main problem is procrastination. I’ve got ADD, not ADHD.” Could it be ADD? What is the distinction? Both Paul and Jennifer discuss a common confusion regarding ADHD: What are the signs of ADHD? How can I know which one I have?
To aid in answering this, it is important to be aware that the American Psychological Association (APA) has released a new manual detailing exactly what a individual has to be experiencing or have experienced for the identification of ADHD.
Quite simply, rather than 2 different ADD or ADHD diagnoses, as Previously, the American Psychological Association now only identifies three “demonstrations” or forms of ADHD:
• Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Demo, and
• Mixed Demo, including symptoms of inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive.
“Predominately Inattentive” ADHD is the new vocabulary for that which was formerly simply called ADD. Symptoms for Predominately Inattentive ADHD would be exactly like what were formerly called ADD symptoms and contain the following, but not all need to be present for an investigation:
• Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in schoolwork, on the job or with different pursuits.
• Often has difficulty holding focus on tasks or play activities.
• Frequently does not appear to listen when spoken to directly.
• Often doesn’t follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the office (e.g., loses attention, side-tracked).
• Often has difficulty organizing tasks and actions.
• Often avoids, dislikes, or is reluctant to perform jobs that require mental effort during an extended time period (such as schoolwork or homework).
• Often loses things necessary for tasks and activities (e.g. college stuff, pens, books, tools, wallets, keys, paperwork, glasses, mobile phones).
“Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Demo” is the current term for people who mostly have the hyperactive and impulsive symptoms related to ADHD. Again, someone does not Have to Be experiencing All the symptoms to have this Kind of ADHD:
• Often fidgets with or pops hands or feet, or squirms in chair.
• Often leaves seat in most scenarios when remaining seated is expected.
• Often runs about or climbs in most scenarios where it isn’t appropriate (teens or adults may be restricted to feeling stressed).
• Frequently not able to play or get involved in leisure activities quietly.
• is frequently “on the move” behaving as if “driven by a motor”.
• Often blurts out an answer prior to a query was completed.
• Often has difficulty awaiting his/her turn.
The “Mixed Demo” is when an individual has symptoms of both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive kinds of

Fidget Spinner, Spinner, Spinning

So, Once I met with Paul, I clarified the distinction between the “Predominantly Inattentive” along with also the “Hyperactive-Impulsive” demonstrations, or subtypes, of ADHD. I proposed that, if his spouse were right in imagining that he’s ADHD, his symptoms could be people of the “Predominantly Inattentive” subtype:
• Frequently does not appear to listen when spoken to directly.
• Often loses things necessary for tasks and activities (e.g. college stuff, pens, books, tools, wallets, keys, paperwork, glasses, mobile phones).
• Often has difficulty organizing tasks and actions and
• Is often easily distracted (both of which may result in running late).
In Taking a Look at the indications for “Predominantly Inattentive” ADHD, Paul realized a Couple of other people in himself:
Paul realized that he’s got lots of symptoms of this ADHD “Predominantly Inattentive” subtype. But for Paul to have the right identification, he wants to attend a physician, preferably one that has expertise in treating ADHD, such as an exam, background, and possibly testing, even if he would like to have a certain identification. The checklist is beneficial in getting conscious of the symptoms which may suggest a diagnosis of ADHD, however, a physician or other health provider with a specialization in mental health should create the official identification.
With Jennifer, I assured her that she and her physician are likely both right. For a while, she is understood she’s symptoms of what was known as ADD. Her symptoms have not changed, just the language has. As a result of recent shift when it comes to describe ADD and ADHD, her routine of symptoms-similar to what Paul has-is currently referred to as the “Predominantly Inattentive” demonstration of ADHD. She is able to check in her next medical appointment, however it is very likely that her physician is merely using the newer vocabulary for ADHD-terms including symptoms of inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, and joint manifestations together under a single wide, umbrella phrase: ADHD. According to the new standards and terminology employed in the analysis, ADHD. To differentiate between various forms of ADHD, together with the newest diagnostic conditions it might be ADHD “predominantly inattentive” should you lack the restlessness or hyperactivity, ADHD “predominantly hyperactive” should you detect you’ve got the restlessness or fidgetiness, and ADHD “mostly mixed type”, in case you’ve got a blend of both.
Which kind of ADHD are you?

They are known as one of the most destructive, and smart, animals in Florida. Raccoon, because of their intelligence, easily adapt to all situations and are well-suited to the outdoor urban lifestyle of the Florida cities. They will rifle through your garbage for a meal, eat your dog or cat food, take food from the bird feeders, and even make a way to enter your home to access your cabinets for the human food. If you’ve seen a raccoon in or around your property it should be removed immediately, if left it will cause damage to your home or property.

The urine and feces of raccoons is riddled with bacteria and they can cause several health problems for both humans and domestic pets. The mess left by raccoons should be removed immediately by a professional. Centurian Wildlife offers professional cleaning and sanitation for the removal of the urine and feces left behind by raccoons. We also offer full service exclusion work that will seal your home against all other raccoons from re-entry.

Damage done by raccoons can be expensive and can include chewing holes to gain entry, breaking soffits, destroying fascia, chewing on wiring, shredding insulation, and of course leaving behind urine and feces. Centurian Wildlife will set live traps to catch the raccoons and remove them to a location where they will no longer be a nuisance to humans.

If you think you have signs of raccoons in the attic call Austin Wildlife Removal for a free assessment, humane trapping and removal of the offending raccoon, closure of the holes the raccoon made, and thorough cleaning of the attic where the raccoon left behind contaminated feces and urine.

Fruit is amazing! I’m a big fan.  There isn’t one kind of fruit that I’ve tried that I don’t like. I even like dried fruit, especially apricots…so so good. When I was a kid I wouldn’t eat prunes because I associated them with making you poop or old people, it wasn’t until I was maybe 17 that I realized they are literally just dried plums…yumm!

Here in beautiful Florida we are super spoiled when it comes to fruit, we can get oranges, grapefruits, lemons, peaches, tangerines, tangelos, bananas and even pineapples right out of your yard. I think in almost every house I’ve ever lived in we had some type of fruit tree in the yard..oh and kumquats, how could I forget those little devils! Growing pineapples in your yard is pretty awesome, they usually don’t get as big as the ones in the store but wow they are so darn amazing! You have to be careful though because raccoons with take big bites out of them and then clearly you cant eat them! Call Critter Control Melbourne FL if you need raccoon trapping.  My mom planted little mini banana “trees” in our yard , and they produced the cutest little bananas, she usually made bread with them, delicious.

Ewwww….you put THAT in your mouth?!

Everyone has a few things they would never ever put in your mouth, right?! For me its the usual suspects..fish eyes, brains, kidneys ummm…anything raw (meat wise, shudders), and I dont generally eat fish..there’s just something about eating something that lives “breathes” and eats its own urine and feces, gross. All over the world there are foods that are considered a delicacy that some other countries people find appalling.  In some places they eat kangaroo on the norm, personally I could never eat one…they are just too darn cute! Of course its normal here to eat lamb and I can’t do that either…again they are adorable. There’s also some fruit that tastes like rotten eggs and looks like them too…ummm..nah, I’m good. Here in the beautiful USA, people eat things that Gainesville Raccoon Removal usually remove like opossum, armadillo, raccoon, snake, gator (which even I love) and even dog which is just down right mean as heck!

Sushi is super big right now, there’s sushi joints all over the place and that means my favorite thing…fish and raw fish, yuck! I will eat sushi but only the cooked kind which of course limits my options, and it can’t be fish..it has to be crab or shrimp, and it has to be super cold…room temperature and I’m out!

Before you put that weird thing in your mouth…think if someone else you know would too, and if not…take a selfie and post away just to creep people out!

Just the Facts, Jack!

It takes 2500 gallons of water to make 1 pound of beef.

Food poisoning usually comes from meat.

Oreos are vegan.

Vegan “food” is generally low in calories.

Pigs are smarter than dogs.

Save the environment…something about killing less tress because they’re not cleared for growing crops to feed animals (Don’t we need crops to grow veggies…for vegans to eat?)


I’m sure there are tons of more friendly vegan facts that would easily convert you from eating delicious steak and bacon pizza, but I’m still not convinced. I love my veggies don’t get me wrong, especially trying different ones I’ve never heard of or that I flat out refused to eat when I was younger…like brussel sprouts, man they are AMAZING!! I’m all about living a healthier lifestyle, I wish I had the willpower to do it myself but I could not give up chicken. I did give up beef for 2 months because cows are just so darn cute…but that veggie burger that tastes like Raccoon Poop just couldn’t compete with the burgers on the grill!
