The all new Mousemesh built-in airbrick for new buildings. Mousemesh Built In replaces the traditional airbrick during construction and provides improved airflow and vermin protection.
Innovation is about utilising new ideas to solve existing problems and introducing effective solutions. The concept and delivery of 21st century pest control solutions for the building industry is now becoming a reality. Our investment in developing new unique and innovative products enables Architects, planners and developers to consider pest control as an integral part of their planning and design.

The ingress of pests in new builds continues to be a health hazard and prevention is the only effective solution. However, preventative measures can also be aesthetically pleasing when incorporated with innovative design, coupled with the motivation to provide products which offer the building industry the opportunity to build pests out. In doing so, this concept brings real benefits to human health.
Pests can only infest a building if they gain entry, survive and breed in it. To minimise opportunities for pests it is essential that the design of new build properties and refurbishment does not create points of pest ingress. There is a real need for architects, planners and builders to recognise and minimise the risk of pest infestation and disease transmission within new developments, and ensure that they do not create conditions that encourage and support pest infestations.
