Red-bellied woodpeckers are beautiful birds, but not when you’re trying to sleep at 5:30 in the morning, when our local representative would hammer away at the aluminum gutters on the other side of the bedroom wall. Just a few “surprise” visits from the Attack Spider sent our woodpeckers to practice their drumming elsewhere, with no harm to the bird and some well-deserved sleep for us. We’re once again a nice state of balance with the local red-bellied woodpeckers, which are infinitely better seen and not heard. We still see them in the neighborhood — they just don’t wake us up anymore. Three cheers for the Attack Spider!
