Mice in the Attic? Icynene Solutions

pest-contaminated-attic-insulation3_0.jpg

Mice (apart from humans) are the most popular mammal to inhabit towns and cities. There small size enables them to squeeze in little gaps you wouldn’t think possible and  they can leave waste, have babies or spread disease around your home.

By installing Icynene spray foam insulation it seals any areas in your attic by insulating it and eliminates nesting opportunities for rodents...

Signs of Infestation Include:

Tracks – Rodents crawl around on top of insulation and leave trails or tunnels. This can damage the insulation fibres and, if they make tunnels, lead to uncontrolled air circulation which will let heat escape.

Holes –  Rats and mice will also burrow into your insulation, creating holes and pockets of extreme damage where they chew and shift it aside.

Dens – If there are places where the sheets of fibreglass insulation can be shifted aside, a family of rats or a mouse will leave in the roomy, warm place that creates, and it will be incredibly difficult to get rid of them.

Our insulation does not break down or deteriorate like other insulates such as fibreglass. We also provide a 25 year guarantee with our products for added peace of mind

Problems with Pests

Mouse nests are about 4 to 6 inches in diameter and look like a ball of loosely woven shredded material. One article was released called ‘What Lies Beneath: Fiberglass Insulation’ in which writer Tom Klenck discloses:

“…mice like fibreglass. In fact, it’s clear that fibreglass is one of their preferred construction materials. They move it from here to there, bunch it up and hollow it out. They nest in it, use it as a bathroom and, as far as I know, they may eat it, too.”

In addition to this, mice using fibreglass for nesting material can quickly cause extensive damage to insulation in attics, ceilings and walls.

Rodents LOVE Fibreglass!
