Material to stuff in empty vent hole 90mm x 50mm x 100mm

Recommended Posts

I am winterizing the block & beam floor slab of my self build in anticipation that a rare celestial alignment of brickies and heritage brick supplies might occur next Spring to allow the build to continue above dpc. The 14 plastic telescopic air vents have been removed for safe keeping which leaves inviting holes for furry creatures looking for a winter home.

 

What could I stuff in these holes to keep rodents out?

Balls of rolled up chicken wire should do the job.

 

Alternatively you could just let mice get in and out, as there's nothing under there that they can damage.

Ok thanks, I will look for a fine-wire small mesh chicken wire having seen your mouse video link showing the mouse getting under a pencil high door gap.

Just screwing up ordinary cheap chicken wire into a ball seems to work OK, and makes the gaps a lot smaller.
