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.
