What insulation does not bite mouse

not do During the construction of a country house without thermal insulation works.A good host always take steps to insulate walls, floors and roofs.When choosing the material necessary for this one of the main issues that arise at the owner's home - a heater does not bite mouse or their relatives.

What insulation does not bite mouse

What insulation does not bite mouse

First of all it concerns the insulation of floors and walls.As you know, many of the insulating materials used for these animals cozy house.Rodents do not eat any of the existing insulation, but gnawing them with great pleasure, arranging inside jacks and running, and if they appear thicker than this material, to evict them from there almost impossible.Therefore , choosing a thermal insulation material, you need to carefully examine all of its characteristics, it was not necessary to redo all the work again.

should be noted that in mice there are few obstacles that they can not overcome - these small rodents to penetrate through the narrowest cracks formed at the junction of walls of the house and concrete tides,and through the almost imperceptible gap facade cladding.If, penetrating into the insulation, rodents will feel it comfortable, not to smoke them out, so the material for insulation must have such properties, which are unacceptable for the existence of animals in its thickness.There are several of these materials, and they are readily available to any owner of a house under construction.


Expanded clay has long won recognition as a reliable thermoinsulator , as it has many advantages.It perfectly not only warms the house, but also absorbs noise.He is completely non-flammable, and of the main - in it not live rodents.

Expanded clay is made from special varieties of clay, which is cleaned thoroughly rubbed and kneaded in a plastic solution.Then, out of him the form of granules and hardened in certain temperature range, at which the heaving mass.At cooling insulation becomes light weight and at the same time - very durable, able to withstand considerable mechanical stress.

Keramzit may have different fractional sizes.So, it is produced in the form of sand, fine gravel and medium-sized as well as large, up to 10 - 25 mm pellets.

unlikely that rodents will choose the device nests and stay at least some of these materials.If a large fraction of the material they will be able to move, in a heater in the form of fine gravel and sand mouse, and even more rats will simply sink.Live rodents can not simply in such a material, since its thickness is insufficient air and a large amount of fine particles which will clog the respiratory tract of the animal. Gnaw keramzit mouse or rat also can not, because it is too tough for them, so they have nothing to do in the house, where there is a danger for them.

keramzita insulated basement, floor and attic floor, but you can apply it to insulate the walls.

  • To do this around or inside the walls make the kind of formwork having the desired thickness, which poured concrete block.He tightly fills the space without compaction.

But before any of them lay a waterproofing material, if it fits the individual sheets, glued them together special tape.Waterproofing raise the walls to 15 - 20 cm, and a wall mounted damper tape and then poured concrete block.

  • Since Mouse manage to penetrate the inner lining and attic floors, they also fill expanded clay chips.


More a material that does not favor the mouse and their relatives - is foamed glass.It is produced in plates and in bulk.

Foamglass - this insulating material, which is manufactured by melting and foaming glass.This process is made possible by the ability of the glass soften and boil at a temperature of 950 ÷ 1000 degrees.

You can apply it and indoors , for example , for thermal insulation of the attic

it can be used indoors and, for example, for thermal insulation of attics

When hardening material acquires high strength - it should reliably protect the house from rodents.However, one must remember that the solution to which are attached the plate should be of high quality, and the joints between them - sealed.Only in this case, the mouse can not penetrate into the room.

  • Foam glass withstands not only to rodents, but also the emergence of fungal structures and the emergence of nests insects.
  • material is durable, will not be damaged by moisture and is not decomposed by ultraviolet radiation, does not crumble and retains its insulating qualities for many years.
  • very important advantage of foam glass is its environmental friendliness - under all conditions the material does not emit any harmful fumes, adversely affecting the health of residents.
  • Foamglass amenable to treatment with a hacksaw or jigsaw, therefore it is very easy to work with during the installation of thermal insulation.

avoid settlements in the insulation rodents, experts recommend the use ecowool .This is a relatively new material, but he confidently takes its place among the commonly used effective thermal insulators .

Installation ecowool comes with special equipment, which helps to distribute the material on the insulated area.After the initial setting caused layer aligned special roller.

The question arises, why rodents bypass ecowool party, because it is soft and easily amenable teeth of mice and rats.Secret dislike these animals to such a heater is that in its manufacture manufacturer adds a mixture of orthoboric acid, which causes the rodent asphyxiation and dehydration.Perhaps some instances and try to arrange in ecowool nest, but they are long in the insulation material can not be, and the more - multiply, so the rodents quickly leave, seemingly comfortable place for living.

Ecowool treated with boric acid has antiseptic properties, as well as good moisture highlights with strong heating, thereby providing relatively high fire performance.

Produce ecowool of cellulose, which is absolutely harmless to the human body, so the insulation can be carried out not only outside, but inside, distributing the material between crate of timber mounted on the floors and walls.

Ecowool has low thermal conductivity and sound conduction, so good at trapping heat inside the premises and drowns out all the noise coming from the street and from other rooms if it trimmed interior walls .

Ecowool remain functional for years to come, as it does not rot and decay.

More a heater, which is not exactly have taste rodents - this foam. And , the material is produced in two forms - in the form of blocks and a special solution.

  • produce pre-engineered masonry walls or draped them ready-made brick or wooden walls.
Foam concrete blocks are suitable for construction, and for additional insulation of walls

This material consists of cement , water, sand and a foaming agent.When he gets hardening stiffness and pronounced porous structure.Foam just will not chew on the mouse, trying to arrange it in a nest, as such conditions are unacceptable.

foam concrete walls insulated with only the outside of the building, or pour the mass in the middle of the masonry at its construction.Indoors for thermal insulation of walls it is used rarely, since it is necessary to strictly observe technological process, and at the slightest deviation from his piers may appear condensate, and means - start mold development process.

floors as well be covered with foam concrete solution.At full hardening it becomes reliable basis for the decorative surface.Floors, filled with this material, get excellent thermal - and soundproofing.

If from foam blocks are derived walls of the houses, these buildings are considered reliable , warm and durable, because the material does not absorb moisture, is not subject to cracking and means , will be available not only to rodents, but also forthe appearance of colonies of microorganisms or insects.

blocks of foam - light in weight, so easy to carry out their clutch.They are environmentally friendly and not day no danger to residents home.They are easy to handle - to cut or drill holes, if necessary.Material absolutely not flammable and does not rot.

And what about with the usual heaters?

1. Penoizol - it's the same polystyrene, only sprayed liquid on the walls and floor with a special compressor.Many articles indicated that the mice do not bite this material because of its components, but, unfortunately, this is not true.Rodents excellent "work" on this material.Perhaps they are not satisfied with it in moves and nests, but they bite it with great pleasure.

same can say and pro extruded polystyrene - it is quite dense , so mouse or rat will not be it live, but bite it, they will not give up.

Neutral Foam by Articles Anet simulator not only to the teeth, but also a great place for the device nests and strokes.Rodents pass freely through it, find the gap in the wall and enter the house.

2. All types of mineral wool as tough for mice and rats, and no matter - be it wool or stone.Any of them is suitable for rodents settled in it for a living.

They do not eat this stuff, but cleverly it is ground, arranging their houses, but if they are chosen warming layer certain home, bring them tovery difficult.The trouble is, that poison and for them it is impossible to lay out, or rodent can say goodbye to life right in the nest, and then get rid of the putrid smell will be very difficult.Therefore, the lower part of the house to insulate these materials is not recommended.

To house was protected from rodents, its basement and basement premises must be insulated hard or bulk materials, as well as very carefully embedded joint between the wall and the concrete shine.It is vital that at this point no formation of cracks and fissures - even the smallest of them will be a good loophole for gray Rogues.And yet - the private house was protected from mice, it is necessary to have a good active cat who will catch rodents still on the way to the house.

But, choosing a heater, still need to follow the advice given above, which are based on the performance of the materials and the experience of many owners of private houses.
