Ant proof insulation

Keep them out of it.

What are the ants doing?

If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

Ant proof insulation

I got rid of all the rats in my house just by putting up 1/4" hardware cloth over all the crawlspace openings and then steel wool where there were holes. Haven't had any more rats. Squirrels are a bit more persistent and you need to make sure around the soffets are sealed up well too or they'll get in the attic.
