    I picked up a couple of pieces of Cedar, figured if I use that it would have more incest resistance,

    Autocorrect? 😀

    Oops so sorry, yup that auto correct insects

    Thanks for pointing that out 🙂

    Hehehe, the autocorrect monster is lurking in the dark, ready to pounce on any of us when we least expect it.

    Me it’s my big clutsy fingers typing on my tablet. I’m often hitting J instead of N and hoping not to offend anyone when I missed that I typed “jew” instead of the word “new”. It’s amazing how many times this has almost happened to me.

    Don’t forget to treat the tops of those posts, regardless of what you put on top.

    Same thing with me on my phone. Some keyboard is better than others (Samsung keyboard has the best auto correct so far), but I begin to proofread what I wrote before submitting now.

    Man those are a mess. I would dig out and put treatment in them and fill with epoxy bondo is epoxy and then cap with something that wouldn’t rot.

    The way to get rid of the woodpeckers is to remove the food source, insects. I think composite caps that fit over the post is a good idea.

    Okay, what do you guys think about this, clean the tops up, they look pretty good except for the one that woody has been pecking at, but for the others, I was thinking clear the top, P L premium Coated or pitch or something to protect the top. Then I was going to use cedar for the caps, then stained,
    Should give the fence a couple of more years,

    That’s something like you guys have been saying

    The only one that I will have to change is the one that is really bad, it’s about 1/4 way down the post.

    I noticed the other day I don’t have wood peckers eating at my porch rails, I have bumblebees boring their home’s into it. At one spot it looks like something clawed it’s way into where the bumble bee was at.

    Those carpenter bee’s are destructive little buggers.

    I’ve never heard of carpenter bees before. Carpenter ants, yes, but not bees.

    Seems woodpeckers like to eat bee larvaes.

    @Sprokitz, yes indeed they are….last deck season I ran around like a mad woman with a jug of turpentine and rags trying to clean up the sap off the wood of pt decks….everybody was calling having problems with wood boring bees, and I thought the sap was drawing them in….still not sure if that was the case, just know that the bees were a big issue. This year, haven’t got the first call.

    Have got a woodpecker here at my home that seems to be confused. He sits on top of the power pole and let’s the cable junction box have it…sounds like a round of ammo going off

    They sure are. They can bore some holes fairly fast before you even know it.

    Bees don’t really bother me, but wasps seem to really like me. We’re actually entering up here cooler weather where they get ‘stupid’ and whenever I’m working outside they like to buzz right in my face it seems. Drives me nuts!
