Stop Pests In Their Tracks By Installing Air Brick Covers & Mesh

Rats, mice and other pests looking for food and warmth will easily find their way into your home or business through air brick vents. Mice are famous for their ability to squeeze through tiny spaces, as small as 6mm. That’s about the normal diameter size of a pen. If the bricks of your air vents have holes about the size of a pen, then mice, rats and other agile pests and insects will be able to enter your property, making air brick covers an important way to prevent access to your property. Rats despite their larger size can also squeeze through 20mm holes. They are also able to chew through plastic air bricks until they make it inside an area where they can nest and find food.

Nobody wants to have mice or rats inside their property as they generally cause considerable damage, contaminate food and chew electrical wiring, which can lead to fires and spread diseases.

Setting rodent traps only gets rid of pests once they have entered your property and been able to cause damage and contamination. Preventing access using air brick covers, will reduce the chances of infestations and the need for regular expensive internal pest control.

Installing Air Brick Covers & Mesh - Simple & Effective Prevention

Air brick covers are a simple but very effective solution to keep your homes and businesses pest-free. They deal with the key reason why you might find insects and rodents such as mice and rats inside your property: entry points. Any hole or opening that’s large enough can be an entry point for rodents.

Windows that don’t seal properly, pipes, walls and foundations, roofs, and air brick vents are common entry points for rodents.

Recently had a new ktichen rennovation work done on my home so this caused some infestation of mice in my home which I was not happy about. Called Biopest as I liked the information that was added on their webpage. The technician came & did a good inspection around my home & advised me on the best way to make my home proofed against future infestations. I was very happy with his advice & he also added further measures on points of my home where the problem was occurring. I was very happy with the service they provided & also thanks to Eva for her kind & reassuring manner when I called to make a booking. Unfortunately my neighbour also had some problems & I recommended Biopest to her & she was very happy with the advice she was given when she had her home inspected.

This company helped me to rid my flat of a horrible insect infestation. Eva was so knowledgeable and helpful on the phone too. If it happens again, I certainly wouldn't use anyone else.

Very refreshing to speak to a company that is honest and not just there to make a quick buck like some other companies. Asked for pest proofing and Eva was great and very honest in that they could do it but it's unlikely to help and why. And referring me to someone for further advice.

From the first Email Ewa was incredible professional and reassuring. Great customer service all around and very professional. I had my whole flat sprayed twice both time very professional and helpful. Staff were happy to follow up and answer any questions I had. And I know I had lots since I experienced bugs for the first time ever and they pushed me almost to insanity considering with lock down i was stuck home 24/7. I can't recommend them enough although I hope I will never need to call for their services again. Thank you again!!!

Pest control at its finest! So I've had a few different issues over the years, ranging from mice to rats (eeek!) to squirrels and over lockdown these traumatic "attacks" have been regular and in some cases persistent. I've contacted several other pest services but once I spoke to and had a visit from the London team, I've not bothered with any other service providers. From the office team's assessment through to the site technician's prompt and on-time visits, I have not been disappointed. Whilst most of the other control services focused on resolution, Bioactive Pest Control looked at both resolution and prevention. The technician took his time to understand the problem and the underlying root cause, some of which were glaringly obvious to the other providers but had never been raised. Also, I have found an attention to detail and conscientiousness, which is above and beyond any other pest service to date. I would heartily recommend for a thorough, professional approach to ridding you of any unwanted pests.

Air Brick FAQ

Can I cover an airbrick?

Yes, you can cover an airbrick to prevent pests from entering your home. Airbricks are designed to provide ventilation, but they can also serve as entry points for various pests, such as rodents and insects. To effectively prevent pests, you can cover the airbrick with a specially designed vent cover or mesh screen. These covers allow air to circulate while keeping pests out.

What can I cover an air brick with?

To prevent pests like rats, mice, and insects from entering your home through air bricks, you can cover them with various materials designed specifically for pest prevention. One popular option is using mesh screens or vent covers made of durable materials like stainless steel or galvanized metal. These covers are designed with small openings that allow proper ventilation while effectively blocking the entry of pests.

Can rats & mice get through airbricks?

Yes, rats and mice can indeed squeeze through airbricks, making them potential entry points for these pests into your home. Airbricks have openings designed for ventilation, but these openings are often large enough for rodents to slip through. Rats and mice are skilled at finding tiny gaps and crevices to access buildings, and airbricks are no exception.

Should I check airbrick covers?

Regularly inspect the mesh covers to check for any signs of wear or damage, repairing or replacing them as needed. By covering air bricks with mesh properly, you create a robust barrier against pests while allowing adequate ventilation, ensuring a pest-free and well-ventilated environment in your home.
