What is rodent exclusion?

We consider exclusion to be the best form of rodent prevention, better than any trap or pesticide. But how does rodent exclusion work? For rats and mice to get into your home they have to get in your home, through any crack or exposed opening they might find. Through exclusion methods you can eliminate these vulnerabilities by:

  • Sealing cracks and crevices
  • Installing door sweeps and replacing weather stripping 
  • Installing dryer and stove vent covers
  • Placing chimney and plumbing caps

  • Closing up gaps with caulk or sealant
  • Installing door sweeps on your garage and other doors
  • Investing in vents for your dryer and stove, and caps for your plumbing and chimney
  • Replacing damaged insulation and deodorizing it
  • Sealing entry points into the attic and installing wire mesh over openings
