Kids and pets are added factors when you are carrying out rodent control around someone’s home. Exclusion should be a part of your residential rodent control program to help minimize risk and reduce rodent incursions.
For small-hole proofing and exclusion work, we recommend using an industry-specific paste compound. It can be easily applied with a caulking gun to fill cracks, gaps and holes up to 2 inches in diameter in wood, brick, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and metal. The combination of metal fibers and polymers stops rodents gnawing through, with the added bonus that it is pesticide-free. The compound quickly forms a waterproof and paintable outer skin, while the paste stays tacky on the inside so if any rodents try to chew through, it simply reseals.
