Mouse entry gap into a house in Atlanta

That dryer vent on this house in Atlanta was never properly attached to the house. They have to be attached on either the outside or the inside of the house.

This installer did neither, relying on caulking to hold the vent in place. It didn't work out too well -- except for the mice. They were able to get into the house through the gap.
