How To Rodent Proof An Entry Point

A major part of learning how to keep rodents away is sealing up potential rodent entry points (Again, called a Rodent Exclusion) around your home, so this pest can’t continually invade. Combined with proper pest control, patching entry points is a highly effective method of combating this pest.

The materials you use to patch a rodent entry point should be rodent-proof as they can gnaw through many materials.  You should use something metal or galvanized hardware wire, as these materials are strong against rodents.

Inspect the areas around doors, roof, soffit, fascia, and your home’s foundation for cracks or gaps that rodents may enter through. It is important to be thorough during this process, as even a dime-sized hole can be enough for a rodent to squeeze through. You should also be looking for rodent entry around utility lines, piping, or electrical wiring, as these places often have gaps that rodents can use to enter your home.

If you choose to do it yourself, install rodent-proof materials once you have found the rodent entry points around your home. For added defense, you should replace or repair damaged windows, and rotten wood, have damaged garage doors repaired to fit tightly, and invest in a chimney cap to firmly keep all rodents out.
