Here we have yet another example of our rodent exclusion work. The original screen on this crawlspace vent was torn. These types of screens are not very secure; mice, rats, or even chipmunks can easily tear or chew their way through them. Also, TV/internet installers commonly cut through them to run their cable wires into a house. Since this was a brick house, and the mortar around the vent was good, we simply cut and installed some quarter inch pvc-coated, (so it won’t rust,) heavy-gauge screen directly over it.
Sometimes the frame also needs repair, especially when the home has siding. That situation is very common here in Romeoville where we are based from. Call us at 779-456-1883 with any questions you may have about mice or any other pest problems.
