Nick Castro, owner of Nick Extreme Pest Control in California, has been in the pest control industry for over 20 years.
He has seen many strange things in his career, but recently he came across something that left him shocked.
Castro was called to a house to deal with a woodpecker that was damaging the siding by depositing acorns in the holes it had made.
When he cut down the wall to extract acorns, he was faced with a never-ending stream of acorn seeds.
Castro said, “They just kept coming and going, non-stop.” dodo,
“The acorns were supposed to go only a quarter of the way up the wall. Turned out, they were piled high up to the attic of the house.
Castro opened more holes around the houseBut the acorns kept pouring in, about 700 pounds in total, filling eight large trash cans.
According to the pest controller, the bird had deposited acorns all over the house, leaving obvious woodpecker holes everywhere.
“You would think this bird has stashed food everywhere,” Castro said.
“Bird was completely destroyed With holes made in the exterior of the house. Acorns were stored throughout the siding and trim.
Castro said the bird was “crazy”.
“We actually saw him there when we were putting more into the holes he made there,” she said.
The bird had put the acorn through the chimney stack after making hundreds of holes in the wood siding, and then it came through the attic ventilation port holes.
“The oak was stacked about 20 feet up in the attic from the bottom floor,” Castro said.
At Nick’s Extreme Pest Control, “all animals are handled humanely and are never euthanized,” and this case was no exception.
The woodpecker was left alone, and the landlord just punched holes Outside the house.
It was hoped that adding the new vinyl siding would encourage the bird to find a new place to store its food, which would ultimately be best for the bird, whose hard work was being wasted finding acorns. .
Castro said, ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before.
