Poorly-Installed Foundation Vent Allowed Mice into an East Point, Georgia Home

Quarter inch gap between the foundation vent flange and the bricks allowed mice into a house in East Point Georgia.

Mouse gap behind a foundation vent in East Point

It looks like the mice did a bit of gnawing at the vent cover itself and the screen before figuring out that the gap behind the flange was an easier way to get into the house. Mice aren't known for being deep thinkers.

Deep thought wasn't necessary in this case, however, because the foundation vent cover was never properly installed in the wall. It was just shoved in there rather than being secured to the house. It's also made of plastic, which mice and other rodents scoff at; and the screen behind it is nowhere sturdy enough to keep mice out of a house.

We'll be replacing all the foundation vent at this East Point, Georgia home with sturdy metal ones that will keep mice and other animals out of the house.
