How to Keep Mice from Getting Into a House When Installing a Generator

Tight fit between an electrical conduit and the exterior wall it passes through will keep mice out of the house

Properly installed generator conduit

The last post got me thinking about my own generator installation, which I did myself.

Notice that there is no space between the conduit and the wall it passes through. I did apply some sealant to keep moisture out; but no sealant was necessary to keep mice out of the house because I cut the hole to the correct size to begin with.

Oversized holes where pipes and wires pass through walls is one of the main ways that mice get into homes. That's why I made sure that wouldn't happen at my own place.
