Pest Exclusion

Seal Your Crawl Space and Keep Out Rodents

Pest Exclusion – If you have experienced recurring problems with mice, rats or other rodents getting into your house every year, a permanent solution is available and highly recommended! Rodents can squeeze into the openings as small as ¼ of an inch. Older home structures, especially, often have many gaps that rodents find very attractive.

What is Rodent Exclusion?

When our Universal Pest professional comes to your home for a Rodent Exclusion Service, he or she will inspect for signs of rodent entry points in the house; identify nesting areas, and seal nooks and crannies to prevent entry in the future. It utilizes Integrated Pest Management (ITM) methodology to solve the problem, instead of only treating the symptoms of the rodent problem. Seal Up, Keep Out.

What should be done to keep out / seal out rodents?

  • All openings greater than 1/4″ should be sealed to exclude mice, but it may be impossible to seal all openings.
  • All openings greater than 1/2″ should be sealed to exclude rats.
  • Likely access points for rodents are where utility lines come into walls, as well as openings around air conditioning, drain pipes and vents.
  • Look for broken foundation vents, broken crawl doors, and unscreened vents as possible points of entry. All spaces beneath first floor level should be checked for openings.
  • Roofs shold be checked to see that shingles are tight and sheathing is complete. Also check roof ventilators, screen vents and luvered in wall vents.
