What is Rodent Exclusion?

When it comes to preventing rodents from getting inside your home, you may have heard the term “exclusion”. What exactly is exclusion?

Rodent exclusion is the practice of sealing vulnerabilities on the exterior of your home so that rodents don’t have a way to get inside. You might think if your doors and windows are closed, you’re fine. But mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime. Exclusion services involve inspecting the exterior of your home to identify these small holes or gaps, and then sealing them up.

Common areas where small holes or gaps can occur include:

  • Door frames
  • Door sweeps
  • Window frames
  • Utility entry points
  • Vents
  • Where the siding meets the foundation
  • The foundation itself

Prevention is critical when it comes to rodents. Exclusion services are a highly effective way to prevent rodents from entering your home.
