Mice in the house or in the house wall

It is not uncommon for mice, rats or other rodents to make themselves comfortable in houses or house walls and facades. Especially in winter, when it gets cold outside for mice, rats and other rodents, these rodents are drawn to the warm, heated houses, but above all to the double-skin outer walls, such as a clinker brick facade. There they are also safe from your enemies, like the cat.

If you have found mice or other animals in your house or on the wall of your house, you wonder how you can get rid of them. First of all, it is very important to find out exactly where the troublemakers built their nest and how they got there.

Mice in the wall

Many facades and exterior walls are now built with two shells. That means there is an inner wall and an outer wall. Between these two walls there is a cavity a few centimeters wide, which is filled with insulating material (such as mineral wool or polystyrene). As a rule, there is also an air layer in addition to the insulation, which also has an insulating effect but also ensures that any moisture that may have entered can be removed by air circulation and mold formation can thus be prevented.

In order for air to circulate, ventilation holes are necessary on the outer facade. This is achieved with a clinker brick facade in that some butt joints e.g. not be grouted on the floor, but remain open.

This open butt joints  close to the ground, for example, are the ideal entrance to a warm and safe nest for mice. Of course, wasps can also reach the higher ventilation slots in the facade.

Use thatFUGITTE joint grille  As a solution: the ventilation slots in the clinker butt joints are closed for animals. Air circulation is still possible! This makes FUGITTE the ideal butt joint vent.

How do mice get in the attic?

The question often arises how mice manage to get into the attic. As a rule, you can get close to the ground through the open butt joints  behind the outer wall. In the area of ​​the insulation you can easily climb up on the insulation. The wire anchors, which connect the 2 walls with each other, serve as a conductor for the mice. Once in the attic, you come into the house through the inner wall, which was usually not plastered.
