 In Tips & Tricks

Buildings in Quebec sometimes fall victim to a mouse infestation. When winter arrives, these little beasts like to settle down in a warm place, sheltered from bad weather and the cold.

Do you want to protect your home from an infestation and keep these rodents away? Find out in this article how to block a mouse hole so that mice no longer enter your home.

Caulking: the ideal solution to block a mouse hole

If you want to prevent an infestation of rodents, such as mice, it is important to close off access to your home by blocking the holes they are likely to enter through.

Caulking is an ideal solution for preventing these pesky little visitors from settling in your home. As part of a caulking job, a professional exterminator comes to your home and inspects it. The goal? To identify possible entry points used by mice and block them.

Since every hole, crack or crevice is a potential access route for these small rodents, it is essential to make sure they are all sealed properly.

Caulking the access points with different materials

Different materials can be used to seal the access points, depending on the type of opening. Let’s have a look at some of them.

 Cement and caulking: powerful allies in rodent deterrence

Two of the best known materials for plugging a mouse hole are cement and caulking. These materials are used to seal various access points in walls or foundations to create an effective intrusion barrier. Resistant and impervious to our harsh Quebec winters, these durable materials offer very good protection, regardless of the weather.

Metal mesh, the anti-mouse campaign goes on

When it comes to sealing exterior exits, such as air vents, dryer outlets, etc., the use of a metal screen is practical.

This physical barrier totally obstructs mice from accessing the inside of your property. Depending on the area to be covered, several screen formats are available. A caulking expert will be able to recommend the right choice.

Using the right materials to block a mouse hole

In short, there are different materials that can be used to block a mouse hole – from cement to caulking to metal mesh. Depending on the situation and the extent of the infestation in your home, you may want to use one or the other of these materials to prevent rodents from entering your home.
