How to seal foundations from mice?

So How to seal foundations from mice? Like people and other animals, mice need a warm place to shelter when it’s cold outside. During the winter months, rodents will often seek shelter in people’s homes, taking advantage of the food and warmth available. Because a home’s foundation is closer to the ground, where mice spend most of their time scurrying about, this is one of the most common entry points they exploit to make their way indoors. Mice can squeeze through the narrowest of gaps and cracks in your home’s foundations to gain entry. If you want to keep them out, you will need to seal them up thoroughly.

How to seal foundations from mice?

When selling your home’s foundation against mice, the first thing you need to do is examine it for any physical damage. You are looking for any cracks or gaps that have formed that a mouse could squeeze through, as well as any signs of the physical damage that a mouse might have caused. You can check to see whether mice are using these cracks to gain entry to your home using either of the following methods:

1 – Shine a UV light over the area. If there’s any mouse urine, it will show up clearly under UV.

2 – Spread a layer of flour or talcum powder on the floor in the surrounding area. If mice are using the damage to enter your home, they’ll leave tracks leading up to the damage.

As long as the cracks in your foundation aren’t too severe and don’t threaten the structural integrity of your home, you should be able to seal them yourself. Sealing cracks early will prevent them from spreading and preserve your wall’s integrity. However, if your foundations’ damage is severe, you should call in a professional contractor to assess the situation.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
