How many MouseMesh will I need?

MouseMesh will only be effective if you cover all of your ground level airbrick vents 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 MouseMesh Airbrick Vent Covers page.

Our stainless steel MouseMesh are supplied with stainless steel screws.

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