Lexington KY Mouse Exclusion
“Commensal rodents” is a term used to describe mice (& rats) which enter our dwellings and live off of and around humans, but without a benefit to us. Humans are getting a bad deal in this unspoken arrangement! Mouse presence in our homes, or other structures, comes with unsanitary droppings, smells, and chewing damage to our things. And this is just scratching the surface of disease concerns and general nastiness that accompanies rodent presence in our homes. If you found this page, you already know its a problem, and you’re here to find a solution! The truth is almost everyone in Lexington KY has sign of mouse presence in their home whether they know it or not; mouse exclusion isn’t provided by home builders. Construction gaps and various venting fixtures on our homes allow mouse intrusion from the very day are homes are built; add in poor construction and maintenance issues over time, and the vulnerability to mouse issues only increases.
There is only one solution, and that is mouse exclusion. Think of mouse exclusion as an armoring of the outside of your home. Exclusion is the inclusive sealing of small gaps, the cladding or backing of weak points with flashings, and the protection of vents with materials that maintain breathability while stopping animal intrusion. Let’s make an analogy, much like a roofer fixes a water leak rather than managing the leak for you with a bucket and repeat visits to empty the bucket, we find the “mouse leaks” during inspection and seal and exclude your home’s exterior to stop mouse intrusion where it begins. Mouse trapping and rodenticides have value, but they’re management strategies like that bucket under the water leak. We provide a mouse exclusion solution; think curing the problem, not just treating it.
