Stress Update

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the recent comments on my blog about my nasty woodpecker. My friend appeared again early Friday morning and this time at the back of the house. I think he moved to the back now because of all the loud Xmas decorations and Santas all over the house. Anyways I went outside and was right next to him and I think I scared the living day lights out of him. I was even shaking in my boots. So on Friday my husband went to a Hunting shop and got some coyote urine. We sprayed it all over the house on late Friday and we waited for him all weekend. But he did not show. Perhaps this is working, but I cant be sure. I am still afraid to leave the house in case he comes and pays me a visit again. Leaving the house unattended is not worth the damage this bugger can do.

So I had the pest control here the other day and we have decided to wrap the entire house with a plastic barrier. Gosh man, I cant believe it has come to this. I wonder what the neighbours will think....LOL. Well, if the plastic works and he moves on, it will be worth the money and embarrasment. Wish me luck. I still have not had a chance to work on any paintings.

The urine is probably working. Haven't seen a prey animal yet who stuck around a marked area.

Good luck!

Oh Lisa - I hope the urine or the plastic or both work for you so you can get some peace and get back to painting.
