Exclusion pest control in Utah is often overlooked but it is critical for successful long term pest prevention.
It is one of the key foundational principles of pest management. We should make structures as difficult as possible to enter instead of simply trying to control the pests once they enter. This can be done in a variety of ways from proper door sweeps, to sealants, stainless steel mesh, escutcheon plates, and various other materials and methods.
Thorn’s exclusion process starts with a detailed inspection. After the inspection, we will assess and discuss the best exclusion methods and the best materials to use. Then, we will install these materials and devices. We will follow-up on the work done and continuously monitor to ensure the devices are working properly and that all possible entry points stay closed.
First step to exclusion is a detailed inspection. We need to identify any potential entry points for rodents and other pests. Usual pest vulnerable areas like doors, windows, utility penetrations, and where the exterior walls meet eaves must be examined carefully.
Once we have identified the potential pest entry points we need to assess and decide what options are best for exclusion. Each situation may require a little bit different approach and solution and thought needs to be put into what will be best for each. Good materials applied in the wrong situations will lead to poor results.
After we decide what will be best, we proceed to exclude. This is generally done millimeter by millimeter to make sure all gaps are filled.
Lastly, we follow-up to make sure what we did is working, installed properly, and holding up. Exclusion points should be monitored on a regular basis to make sure they are still keeping pests out as intended.

Exclusion refers to the process of sealing up pest entry points. By blocking entry points and sealing cracks, pests are less likely to enter a home or building.
Pricing for preventative pest control is highly variable and depends on what type of pest issues need to be controlled. Pest exclusion is often a starting point, and is almost always a cost effective solution. Exclusion gets the best results over any other treatment strategy, and it works over time unlike sprays and other deterrents that are topical and need to be reapplied.
Rodent exclusion specifically refers to sealing up a structure so that rodents cannot enter. This is critical when trying to control rodents like mice and rats. Trapping is a solution for getting rodents that have already entered a space, but if you fail to block their entryways, you’ll trap them endlessly.
Rodent activity begets rodent activity, because they often urinate when entering a structure which informs other rodents on safe entry points. Our team of experts are trained to identify and block entry points to mitigate an infestation, and can help prevent pests from returning.
Exclusion strategies start with a detailed assessment of pest entry points. Mice and rats can enter through some of the smallest gaps, even those measuring ¼-inch to ½-inch. The skilled and knowledgeable pest control specialists at Thorn understand the most effective methods for exclusion, and can make recommendations for the best materials to seal gaps so that your solutions are rodent proof, and won’t rust or degrade over time.
