Los Angeles woodpeckers are beautiful, interesting and wonderful birds. They are very much attracted to wood and tend to peck all over the place making loud unpleasant noises as they do so, which is pretty annoying and destructive. This is especially unpleasant if your house is the subject to these peckings. The woodpecker could destroy the wooden wall of your house easily and also kill a full tree with the holes they make. Therefore, with all these said, then it really is not a wonder if you found yourself here looking to get a few words on how you could trap one.
A very much specialized trap for the California woodpecker is there and it is basically just a bird house. It would also contain a mouse trap in it, but this would snap and kill the woodpecker and this is not a desirable result since it is inhumane and also has a few regulatory laws against it already.
Another way of catching the Los Angeles bird is by the use of a funnel trap which is a trap that is made in such a way that it is basically like a valve. The woodpecker is lured into the trap by use of a bait, which could be a bug or an insect that is normally in its crosshairs when hunting for food. It kind of squeezes its way through the opening and into the trap. The trick here is that the bird can easily walk in but it is completely impossible for it to walk out on its own. So, after this, the n the bird can be said to be essentially trapped.
Another method that is used here is the use of a sticky substance that is smeared onto the surface around the area the California bird is currently supposed to be pecking. This sticky substance is actually that used to catch mice with. When the bird comes, it touches the sticky substance and is stuck there until someone comes and removes it.
At this point, I should highlight to you that trapping the Los Angeles bird and relocating it proves to be in vain since the bird eventually finds its way back to the house. Also, experts say that a woodpeckers should not be trapped or left alone when they are less than eight days old, This is because by then they have not quite learnt to survive on their own by then and could easily perish in the wild.
