Wire mesh screens: a practical solution for blocking access to rodents

Various techniques can be used for rodent control. Among the various sealing and caulking services options, the wire mesh screen remains a very effective solution. This barrier can discourage rodents from venturing into your backyard and even from intruding into your home.

During a consultation with a caulking expert, they will evaluate your home and your property to identify possible entry points for pests. Once this evaluation is completed, they can determine the necessary procedures to block all access to your property.

What are the different types of wire mesh screens

When you call in an exterminator, they will assess which type of screen will be most useful in solving or avoiding pest invasion problems. There are two main types of wire mesh screens.

Finely woven wire mesh

Finely woven wire mesh is more commonly used to cover external areas that cannot be sealed. This mesh can be used to block possible passages in air vents, air exchanger outlets or even tumble dryers.

This type of mesh is generally used in areas that are more difficult to access. This prevents small rodents such as rats and mice from getting inside your home.

Galvanized steel and aluminium mesh

Galvanized steel and aluminum mesh is more often used to seal larger outdoor areas such as garden sheds.

These thicker and stronger screens help prevent large animals such as skunks or groundhogs from getting under your shed.

Where to install wire mesh screens against rodents

Wire mesh screens are an effective measure to prevent rodents from entering your home. These screens can be placed in certain areas, like near pipes and manholes or ventilation ducts, to stop pests before they get into your home!

Installing wire mesh screens on your compost bin is the most important thing you can do to keep pests out. There is a perfect solution to tackle this problem: special metal screens that let in air, but not rodents.

Prevent rodent access with wire mesh screens
