Shirley from Martinez, Ca writes,

Do I need to cement after I use Stuff-it mesh?

I have gaps between my house siding and foundation. To prevent rats from entering my house, do I need to apply a sealant(cement) after I use Stuff-It.? Or will using Stuff-it be enough and how long does the product last?


Stuff-it alone in cracks and areas where there are gaps is usually not enough to deter rodents since they can easily pull it out.  You should either cement the stuffit in place or typically you would at least use an expandable foam in the crack or gap which will hold the stuff-it in place and prevent it from easily being pulled out.
