How To Mouseproof The Outside Flight


Recommended Posts

The flight is meshed in 19 guage 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch hardware cloth. It is right down to floor level sitting on my deck. Having just read through some other posts I'm now of the opinion that mice may be able to get in. How do you all mouseproof your outside flights?

You need tin or clear corrugated sheets up the sides of the aviary to at least 2 ft ( 60 cms ) high or more.

But they can also come in at the roofline if they can get to your roof.

no food hanging off aviary wire. All food in pedestals so mice cannot climb legs of feeding platforms.

Would clear plexiglass work? Tin would definately spoil the look I'm going for.

Goodness...I never thought about them getting in at the roof...it's going to be sitting on my upper deck so I'm hoping it won't be a big problem but I'd like to cover all bases before I actually put the birds in it. No matter what I use as a roof, if they can get on top of it, they could probably jump off it and onto the mesh at any height.

 

GRRRR...now I have to factor this into the build.
