Rodent Exclusion Techniques
Rodent exclusion services consist of trapping the mice or rats in a way that keeps everyone safe. This is also the more humane route, as it ensures that the rodents are kept in or safely released back into the wild. There are a number of popular exclusion methods that have proven to be effective:
- One of the most popular ways to keep rodents at bay is to use wire mesh to protect landscaping, including plants and trees where mice and rats frequent. This wire mesh can also be used to stuff openings where pipes and wires enter the foundation, such as around outdoor faucets, gas meters, clothing dryer vents, and more.
- Another exclusion material is hardware cloth applied over attic, roof, and crawl space vents.
- Metal flashing may also be used to seal openings around the gutters.
- No matter the material used to seal up openings in the property, technicians will thoroughly seek out any suspected access points and seal them as part of their rodent exclusion service.
- Rodent exclusion services include trapping these animals in a way that keeps everyone safe, and ensuring that protected animals are safely released back into the wild.
- Popular exclusion methods also include using anti-rodent wire mesh to protect landscaping including plants and trees.
