Rodent Proofing

The most common entry points for most Rodents are, faulty or deteriorating brickwork and foundations. Gaps large enough for Mice are 6mm and Rats 12mm. Another common route for Rats is through your drainage system. If an Interceptor Cap is missing or has fallen into the system, they can easily gain access to any of the domestic channels, leading to our home or workplace.

Other easy routes are gaps below doors, including roller shutter systems.
They are excellent climbers, so can easily climb up walls if the brickwork is rough enough for them.
They can also climb up the inside of your drain pipes as well as the outside too, they simply get up between the gap in the wall and your drain pipe. Once onto the gutter, they may gain access to your loft space, if there is an entry point.
