How many Mousemesh will I need?

Mousemesh will only be effective if you cover all of your ground level airbrick vents (all levels if you wish to stop wasps and bees etc) and block up any other holes you have that will allow pests to enter your home e.g. where pipes and cables enter your property.

How do you fix Mousemesh in place?

Mousemesh can be glued or screwed into place. We recommend screwing as it can be easily removed whilst decorating your home without leaving adhesive marks. Gluing Mousemesh works just as well as long as you use a strong high performance adhesive such as Stixall which can be used in wet or dry conditions. Stixall can be purchased on our website. See our fixing Mouse Mesh Grills page.

Stainless Steel Mousemesh are supplied with stainless steel screws.

House mice can enter the home through very small holes but MouseMesh keeps them outThe gap between the holes on the stainless steel insert on mousemesh are
2mm x 2mm - small enough to prevent:

  • mice
  • rats - we recommend the use of stainless steel mousemesh where you wish to prevent rats entering your property

  • bees
  • cockroaches
  • and any other similar sized insects or pests entering your home via your airbrick vents.
