It is vital to be proactive when it comes to keeping wildlife out of your home. Rodent exclusion is one of the most critical steps to keep your home rodent-free. It often involves sealing holes, reinforcing vulnerable areas, and installing barriers around your home to prevent rodents from entering. By working with a pest control company to implement exclusion measures, you can stop rodents from invading your home, causing damage and spreading disease. Our rodent exclusion services will effectively deter rodents when combined with our rodent extermination services.
What is Rodent Exclusion
Rodent exclusion involves sealing or blocking potential entry points and repairing damage to prevent rodents from entering your home. Rats and mice can slip through tiny openings, even holes as small as a dime, which makes sealing any holes or gaps in the exterior of your home crucial. They exploit any small holes or gaps in worn siding, vent openings, or gaps around pipes. Once inside, they can quickly establish nests, cause damage, and wreak havoc inside your home. Proper rodent exclusion is vital to prevent their rapid spread and infestation.

Common Rodent Entry Points Around Your Home
Regularly inspecting your home for signs of rodent activity is important. Partnering with an exclusion company to seal any rodent entry points, repair damage, and add barriers will help prevent rodents from entering your home. Some common areas where rodents often enter your home are:
- Crawlspace: Your home’s crawlspace is a perfect hideout for many pests and wildlife. Securing the entrance with a mesh and sealing holes around your foundation will keep rodents from invading.
- Chimney: Rodents will commonly enter a home through chimneys by climbing overhanging trees to get on your roof. They will gain entry through uncapped flues or damaged areas. Installing chimney caps or screens will block their entry into your home.
- Soffits/Eaves: Rodents often infiltrate homes through damaged soffits and eaves. They use these openings as entry points into attics in their search for food, warmth, and new nesting sites. Regularly inspect and repair damaged soffits and eaves to prevent rodent infestations.
Preventing a Rodent Infestation
Securing your home from rodents is vital for a safe and calm living space. Routinely check your home’s exterior for gaps, holes, open vents, chimneys, or pipes where rodents may enter. Swiftly seal and repair any discovered openings using mesh, sealants, or durable covers to prevent a rodent infestation. Employing these proactive exclusion methods with an expert rodent exclusion company will help stop rodents from setting up residence in your home.
