Everyone always states that mice need just a 1/4 ” void or the diameter of a dime to get inside a structure. Well, here is some visual proof of that being a fact! The attached image shows a juvenile mouse stuck on an insect monitor. The dime is there for visual reference. Let me just repeat that last part…..The mouse is stuck on an insect monitor, we use those to obviously monitor for insects. It caught a mouse, go figure!
EHS performs expert structural exclusion because we know that keeping pests out is vital to the success of our program. For rodents, if you close off a runway they use it creates stress on the population & forces them to do things they would not ordinarily do.
So next time you hear “mice can not get in through an opening that small” you have this picture to prove them wrong.
