    If Not One, Then Another

    I have a house that has carpenter bees that we have treated. However, now the customer is saying that woodpeckers are digging into the wood of the house to get the larvae. What can I do to, and is there anything that will help?

    Birds - Not Always So Cute

    I have a sparrow problem in a food processing warehouse. We have tried trapping, glue boards with water and seed on them, and shooting them, with limited success with all of the above. I am asking if you have any other suggestions as to what we can do to help this customer out. They are becoming a little upset.

    Avitrol Says Goodbye

    I understand that Avitrol is no longer available since it has closed. I am wondering if this is still legal to use in the state of NY. I am having a bird issue in western NY and I was looking at implementing a program at the location. Can you please advise?

    I have a customer who just had an in-ground swimming pool installed with a very nice stone apron surrounding it. This residence is on the coast, Cohasset, MA, and you would think the problem is seagulls, but it is Robins flying over the new apron and leaving their mark - so to speak.
