    Default Mouse guards required for top only entrance?

    I am using a top only entrance, using a cover shimmed 3/8". I plan to reduce the entrance to 1" wide for the winter. Does anyone use mouse guards for their top entrances? Or had mice get in through a top entrance?

    I've had no trouble with mice getting in a 3/8 high opening.

    Are you screening the bottom entrance opening? Thinking of inlet air???? Round holes in fronts of supers???????

    The bottom entrance is blocked, but I have an SBB. I was planning to pull the tray out a little bit for ventilation.

    Are you saying that you've had mice get in, or have had no trouble keeping them out by using a 3/8 inch high opening?

    There must be a harder way to do that... let me find it for you.

    Mice like the landing strip to start the attack from. Raise it up and they move on.

    No troubles with mice if opening is 3/8 high.
